Hey, 
Found something really cool online, something that will really help students have a good idea about the residency and what to Aim for, Best of luck to everyone and Don't forget to set a high goal ;)
The table below shows the scores in which residency programs generally do not grant interviews as well as the scores in which they generally do. This data was collected by the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) from surveys with program directors every year. Depending on what type of residency you want to do, you’ll want to strive for at least the scores on the right column. As an International Medical Graduate, who needs to “prove yourself more,” add a few more points to the target score listed.
SPECIALTYPrograms generally do not grant interviews below these scores:Programs almost always grand interviews above these scores:

  3. it didn't really specify but its probably for both but it depends on the residency program, some program just want AMG and don't want students who would require a visa, this is just the overall for everyone that applied from what i can tell.
