Default To be honest

State licensing has nothing to do with failed CS attempts, you can do residency in any state.
The problem is that residency programs usually do not accept people who failed the CS several times.
I'd say you should not stop other options from going, keep working in another country and apply remotely online for the match, only if you get an interview come to USA, your chances are very low.
