Thumbs Up Yes

Yes, you have chance.

I am an AMG and most of us in US apply with Step 1 score only. But I know several IMG friends (from Mexico and Brazil) who applied last year with Step 1 score only and they were matched, one of them in IM and the other in Peds.

So I think you have a good chance.

Default Yes, ...but

Yes you have a chance. However, there are many factors that affect your probability of getting an interview such as your step 1 score, your experience, what are you doing right now, year of graduation, what specialty you will apply to, ...etc
