You should read the NRMP Program Director's Selection Criteria survey. It is a good source to get an unbiased opinion about this question from research done on the people who actually make most of the decisions.

Your chances are pretty good! After you get the interview, it's all about personality and them getting to know you to figure out if you would be a good fit for their programs.
So stay positive. Good things are on its way! (At least that's what I say to myself every day! )

yeah i didn't apply to CA. coz while doing my rotations here in Chicago i ask some AMGs & they said they didn't bother also to apply just bcoz CA programs also prioritize AMGs of CA.. but there's some IMGs who match there.

but don't fret, that's still an awesome ratio man. 140:11. good luck. don't worry you'll match. hopefully we'll all match.

140:11 is an awesome ratio? please forgive my ignorance but,can anybody please explain why that is so? do we IMGs get only that amount of interviews after applying for so many programs?

it depends & varies. some have more bcoz of strong credentials & score. but for many, that is already a good ratio. some push it to 200 to have 5-10 invites.
