Default Match Advice - please and thanks :)

Hey everyone.

I'm a 4th year Canadian IMG at a Caribbean school, who will graduate in December 2015 with 2 years of USCE. As a Canadian, I will need a VISA.

Step 1: 241 Step 2 CK: 265 Step 2 CS: will be done in April
Research: undergraduate thesis (conference presentations & posters), psychiatry summer research assistant for 2 years, while in medical school 3 poster presentations (2 in internal medicine, 1 in surgery)

Trying to figure out what type of residency my application would be competitive for in the 2016 match.

Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!
