Pros: CK score and step 3, MRCP, poster
Cons: Step1 score, YOG

IMO, ur application's biggest problem will be the YOG, 85% of the programs have either a 5year or a 10 year YOG limit..and they too send interviews to the fresh grads...so unless u have any contacts in those programs, they will filter u out.

We have a very similar profile, except that I'm taking step 3 next months as I don't need it (GC holder).
Good luck!
