I am no expert in this but in my opinion your odds aren't as good as one would like.
But you can definitely increase it.
1) Get some clinical experience. Try paid externships in a hospital if you can afford. Else apply for observerships. This should be your priority now.
2) Get a good step 3 score. Somewhere around 240.
3) Try to secure a research position for a year. I have heard it can really help if you do well.
4) Try to get a couple of publications in pubmed indexed journals.
5) Do some charity work or community service.
Good luck!
