Certificate IMG Transcripts... How important are grades?


I was just wondering how important medical school grades are in the scheme of things when picking applicants for interview?
What do they look at first?

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?
