Default need help guys .....

I am a recent graduate who needs a visa .. my scores are 226/221/cs pass . YOG 2013. 3 months of US experience . very few contacts in US . I applied this year for IM and peads . till now I have only one IV in hand (peads) .
But I jus got a call from an institution in my home country for IM residency .
I ws hoping if u guys cud advice on whether i shud go ahead with these scores and try for residency in US or I shud go back and do residency in my home country and come back to apply again ?
and best of luck for all the ppl who applied dis year ..
