Firstly to be honest ur chances have decreased a lot, but u can try in community hospitals, who do not have the 5 year cut off rule..Wat do u mean by 85+ scores??There is no percentile system now..Ans USCE is a must, try getting observership and LOR tru that.

Default Thnx a ton fr yr reply

yeah i meant 85 percentile .

I know i can really work hard and score good marks , if i sense a real chance for myself in getting matched.
Do you think with all the above mentioned handicaps, should i go for it,,,??
Are there good med schools in US which don't ve the 5 yr cut off for YOG,,,,Is my branch Psychiatry a comparatively easier or harder to get in,,,,??
