    you ll need to score above 230 in your USMLE and you'll be fine.
    what matters to secure a residency in the US are your USMLE scores, letters of recommendations from US Doctors , get an internship at US med school for one rotation.. you must do this while a student!!! ...and great interview skills..
    if you want to apply to extremely competitive fields as of now: Radiology, ophthalmology, dermatology and ER.. you ll need excellent grades.. but for IM and FM you should be okay provided you deliver the results stated above.
    peace.
