I will believe that you are stating your opinion , but maybe if you give me good reason rather just saying I won't

You def stand a chance. Don't let those negative people influence you. They don't want to see you try because either they themselves failed or they don't want competition.

You're young YOG and GC holder and they love that.

All you need is:
1. a VERY GOOD PS
2. clinical experience (trumps anything else)
3. very good LORs from US doctors
4. publication (if possible)
5. step 3 (if possible)


Good luck!!

I know what you mean, A lot of people, is in your position, I was too, the thing is nobody here can tell you, people with better grades don't match people with worse grades do match, so is a gamble for everybody... but I think you can match if you get experience and good letters of recommendation.
good luck!!
