    Green card advantage?

    Right now I have the chance of applying for a green card which I'll get in a few years. I want to know how much of an advantage I'll get regarding chances of acceptance at various general surgery residency programs in the us.

    Though I can't quantify exactly how much of an advantage you'll have with a green card, I can tell you that by not requiring a visa, you'll increase your chances of getting any residency, not just surgical ones.
