Ideally you should have clerkship ..or some us clinical experience..some worthwhile publications would be a big help ..in the end it is how you fare in the interview..

I'm in the same boat as you. I guess we'll never really know our chances till we try. You're a pretty fresh graduate and your score is close to the average. Lets rock step two. Good luck.
