  @Javed88,are you not happy as a physician assistant?I am not sure about chances but since you are active clinically, it will help you a lot.keep applying as it will not hurt you and predict your chances with response.

  As a beginning do Step 3 and pass it from first attempt.
Your YOG and other USMLEs are all more than 10 years away. You need to show them that you are up to date in medicine.
Your clinical experience is great. I think you have good chance (only if you pass step 3).

  How do you become a PA? Did you just take the exam or full course? Step 3 will work a lot. Good luck.

It seems like you have been working as a PA for quite a long time. Have you worked in any hospital that offers residency? I think you would have better chances to know people and apply for residency again. I actually start PA this year. My hope is to get clinical practice and connection to reapply for residency again after graduation. After seeing your question, I'm kind of losing hope in that. However, PA is the only way for me right now. It lights up the dark road that I was desperate for a long time.
