Thank you for your valuable suggestion, But my doubt is is it easy to get into it? I mean my step1 score is 233 and I cleared one of my subject in my final year MBBS second time. So what are the odds of getting into MSKCC compared to UNC.

Its not easy to get into there system. but one of my batch-mate application was accepted but he was rejected after a phone call interview, his score was approx. same as urs...but try ur luck if possible score good in TOEFL also. baki 2nd attempt may hardly matter, coz i didn't see them favoring honors-holding students...
UNC mein acceptance rate is higher as compared to MSKCC. they may even consider ur application but i got rejected in UNC coz of low Step 1 & toefl scores.
Baki Gd luck....
