Question Internal Medicine versus Emergency Medicine Residency

Hello,
I am tied between these two residency choices which I find impossible to decide.
The statistics given here in this forum are showing a higher percentage of EM match than IM. Which field has a better chance of getting matched for IMGs?

I'd say that both are attainable by IMGs, see which one you like more and focus on it.
