I am very sorry you are experiencing difficulties, but I totally disagree with one of your statements. You feel that residency in the US is a right. IT IS NOT. It is a privilege we are allowed to apply for residency instead of going back to medical school in the US. And we are granted that privilege because there are/have been shortages of mainly primary care physicians in certain geographic areas. By the way, the shoratges will resolve as the medical school enrollments now match the number of open residency spots. So I am pretty sure all or nearly all foreign-grad spots will vanish in the near future, which you might want to take into consideration when applying
