Your overall GPA is indeed on the low side, but your Step 1 score is above average. If you can also earn a high Step 2 score and if you have good LORs and USCE, then the commitees will brush it off or just ask you about it at the interview.

But it also depends on the specialty you plan to apply for.

And does your yearly GPA have an upward trend? That could also be important. Many students have disastrous preclinical years, but they gradually recover through the years.

P.S.: this post is not for this subforum, mainly for the IMG match one.
