List Requesting Advice on ranking

Hey everyone,
I am new here. This is my first thread. I have been busy preparing for MATCH 2013 , been travelling around for interviews.
I am done with my interviews and now it is time to finalize Rank order Lists which I think is the most hardest part of the MATCH process
Anyway, I have been going through my programs and I have a couple of programs which I am not sure as to how to rank them SO i was hoping that someone could help me out with this.
so these are the programs that I dont know how to rank..!
SUNY Downstate, NY - Internal Medicine
Michigan State University/ Sparrow Hospital, East Lansing, MI- Internal Medicine
University of Mississippi Medical Center, MS- Neurology

I got 6 int med intws and 4 neuro. I just dont know which one would be better in the future career wise- I mean between Internal Medicine and Neurology. I am fine if I get into any.

Hope you guys could help me out with ranking the above listed programs.

Thanks

P.S - My credentials- Step 1-230, step 2ck- 245, step 2 cs pass . Preparing for step 3 . Do not need a visa.

I would keep in mind the NRMP algorithm favors the applicant if you rank the same specialty back to back to back (and so on). I would rank all the IMs followed by all the neuros, or vice versa.

What do you mean? I thought that different specialties wouldn't affect it.
