Are you applying this year or next season?
Your scores are okay as pathology programs, as far as I know, but not 100% sure, don't look at scores as much as other programs. Year of graduation might also be overlooked. Bachelor degree would not help, they like to see graduate degrees (master or PhDs), was your research related to medicine at all, do you have any publications, presentations etc.?
The main factor that will not help you this season is absence of ECFMG certificate. A lot of programs do ask for it at the time of application. Without CS you cannot be ECFMG certified, so you have to hurry.
Oh and a lot of programs already finished with their interview season for this year in case you will be applying this year.
