You stand a good chance.

Positive factors: Good scores, visa not required, 5 months of recent clinical experience

Did you manage to get strong lors from your observership experiences?

If you had done a month of clerkship before graduating, it would have certainly helped. Try to prepare well for interview and apply to a large number of programs. Look for publication or short research opportunities. Having good contacts can help your case.

I got LORs and they agreed to write helpful/strong ones. I hope they mean it

Yeah, I know getting clerkship here would have helped a lot. But oh well, nothing I can do about that anymore.

Thanks for the advice!
