About GPA...

I am an international medical graduate. I studied in Mexico and got a 3.8 gpa

My questiona are : is it considered low? Outstanding usmle scores could help? What do I have to do to match?

Thanks for your answers.

Obviously successful Match is the combination of factors: USMLE scores, number of attempts, Year of Graduation, School, clinical experience, LORS, visa status, etc.

Having strong USMLE scores with first attempt at each step, being fresh Graduate, with supportive LORs would make you rather competitive candidate.

3.8 GPA sounds like a good result! Good Job!

In order to increase your chances for the Match you could consider getting some hands-on clinical experience in the US, that could give you some fresh Letters of Recommendations from US Doctors (that are rather valuable here), taking Step 3, select 'right' the programs to apply
