Your med school performance as an IMG is not as important as having high USMLE scores and United States Clinical Experience (US LoRs, observerhsips, and externships).

So don't worry about it.

@step taker:
I am an IMG living in Qatar. I did my graduation from China, the info that i needed was that i have a verified form 186 and i have all the translated copies of my degree which i will send along with the form 187,345 and 344. As i am applying from Qatar i needed to know that should i get my diploma translated again from here or the one's that i got translated from China would work.
