Star How do you - IMGs - choose Programs and regions

Hi! I'm IMG, and just passed Step 1 and now preparing CK.

I've never been to US. So I don't know which hopspital is fit for me, which state is good for me, etc.

By the way, now I have to choose externship or observership programs for matching. I'm scheduling it to Apr. to Jun. 2017. But I have no idea that which city, which program I would choose.

How do you choose hospitals(or roughly, states), and how do you get informations?

Or if you can, would you please recommend good states for raising children?
