Default Importance of medical school transcripts

Hello guys! do you know how much the medical school transcripts and the years that it took to graduate influence the probabilities of matching for an IMG? (I am a US citizen). For example if it took 8 years for me to graduate instead of 6 will this be a big problem even if I have a good reason? Plus my Medical school hasn't been recognized from the Cali board yet while it is from the World directory of medical schools. Should I be preoccupied?

I think the years it took to graduate matters. As i recall an interview of conrad fischer he mentioned that. His point was that "We wanna go with a guy who can get the job done in time. The point is who does it better on time". You can check it in youtube for more information.
As of transcripts i've no idea
