as far as i ve seen every field is competitive..
u cnt name any single field where a match for IMG is guaranteed.
but there re a couple of other things like ur previous experience,ur experience in US,ur scores and ur visa status..
its a complete package u ve to make to get into any residency program.
all the best and do try obgyn if u feel u fall into applicant criteria for the programs.

In 2012, non-US IMG's got about 20% of the places in IM and about 6% of those in OBS. Scores over 220 should get you in the door. Personal commitment and an ability to show that with good LOR's are a big help.

Would love to hear from someone who actually tried OBS.
