NY has the second largest no. of residency spots in US I think, after California. It is very IMG friendly, most of the big states are making it tougher and tougher for IMGs, NY is actually accomadating. A hospital like Albany has residents from SGU, AUC, MUA, AUA, Ross, etc all the NY schools. It has a good number of green hospitals/programs and is close to home for you Jersey girl and for many Canadians. These people who say it's not a big deal are deluded by their own schools into thinking they can do residency there.
You make the choice, with the increase in US Schools enrollment would you really want to say goodbye to an IMG friendly state with probably the 2nd highest number of residency positions? As I have said before do your research before posting, this is a skill you need to develop because no matter where you go you to school, you will have a tonne of documentation to complete while studying and doing rounds and you can't keep asking people questions based off hearsay.
