well, I'm no expert and I didn't finish my steps yet...

but according to what I see in NRMP data for matching and your credintials, you may have a pretty good chance matching into FM

the only only problem you have to discuss them program directors about and answer to is your 2nd attempt in CS, nothing more or less in my opinion cause you got the step1,2 scores for FM and got the US lors and research required for any usual FM match set up!

Good luck and post here what happened in this years match for you
