You need to have a very carefully selected list of programs that accept "low scores" and Old IMGs.

Do not despair, u still can do it

Boost ur status with great LORs, and try to visit the US for some externship or observership.

The fact that you have many publications is EXTREMELY useful (provided they are in Medline indexed journals).

Good luck
