  From a PC - Unfortunately, with your scores and YOG, your application will never even be reviewed. The work in your home country will be helpful - but only if the application is seen. Your scores are very low, and most programs will not take a chance on the possibility of you not passing the ABIM following graduation.

  Your YOG will be a red flag for the application, if you want to complete residency then you need to have multiple hands-on clinical experience and need to complete Step 3 exam. Also if you have connections it can make the application better.

  With that scores and YOG will be a red flag for the application. But completing Step 3 and having connections can provide chances for the match.
