Help Please help me finalize the states to apply in

I've researched a lot on the internet for IMG-friendly states, and although I learned that it's a matter of each program preferences, regardless of what state it's in, but I have also heard that, in general, there are states which are more IMG-friendly than others.

I've attached here a map of the US, with red stars on states from which I've chosen programs to apply to. The number of programs I've applied to are too many, so I'm asking you if could tell me what states I may not apply in from the ones I've chosen. Also, if there are other states you think I should apply in, please let me know. I don't have any preferences for a particular state.

I'm applying to IM mostly and some radiology. My scores are 99/99/CS results pending, recent non-American IMG.

I'd appreciate your help!
Thanks.

that's pretty much all the IMG-friendly states, I am positive that you'll be matched into IM at least....
