-3 Months Research Assistant Experience (However no publication yet) UK
-2 Years working Experience both in clinical and public healthcare settings, UK

-Strong US PhysicianS LOR, US
-4 Months USCE , US
-expected step 1,2 CS (score above average good)

What are your marks.

these extra thing only plays a part when you get an interview and the PD looks for it in your CV for ranking if you did well on your interview.

so I ask again what are your marks.

I haven't attempt any part yet, but lets hope it with expected score of 240+ in both parts and in first attempts, so would that be a convinceble score.

many thanks

I fail to see how you expect any sort of crystal ball answer by not providing the biggest variable i.e. your scores.

Assuming you will have good scores, your application looks decent. Some publication will definitely help a lot!
The main factor is your LOR guy. If he has strong connections, you will get in.
I am applying for Radiology too.
Good luck to you
