You'll also need to take into account of your medical school (ie, whether or not you are from a reputable institution even outside of the US, for example university of Cambridge, Oxford, Karolinska Institute.), your school grades, any publications, other degrees such as PhD, and your visa status.
I've spoken, at length, to some faculty members who are part of the selection panels, and these are major determinants other than your scores.
Having said that, in terms of your scores, you're obviously on a right track so I would imagine you probably will get some iv's especially if you're not too selective about the institutions you apply to.
If you can bear the financial burden, you can apply this year, do a research or something this year to enhance your cv, and even if, God forbid, you do not match this year, you can apply again next year with your then-hopefully a stronger cv.
Let us know how it goes, and keep us updated.
