Question Medical school not on the medical board approved list

I am an IMG. My medical school is not on the Medical Board of California Approved School List (neither on the disapproved list) and the "medical school approved list" of other states

If I pass my USMLE can I apply for residency? I don't know if I should proceed with my preparation or just take MRCP.

Many thanks.

You can do residency in other states, it doesn't have to be California.

Thanks. Does the "medical school approved list" exist in all states? My medical school is neither on the approved nor disapproved list of California, Texas, New York so far. If it worse comes to worse all the 50 states does not include my medical school on their list then passing USMLE will not allow me to do the residency in all the states, right?
