Question Easiest residency to get into?

I was just looking at a PDF file that I have of info on matches in 2011 and it seems family medicine requires the lowest step 1 score (203 +/-10).

Is it fair to assume a score of 210 on my step 1 will secure a FM residency for me in the future if i score equally as well on step2 and 3?

There are many factors other than scores that play a role in earning you more interviews especially visa status and observerships you have. In general FM is easy to get if you knew where and how to apply.
