well let me tell u , ur question is very broad u need to specify the field of interest, clarify on what do u mean by suitable for GC carriers whom are most likely IMG's, then distinguish it from there. but being very broad is hard to answer u.

Does having a GC give you an additional advantage?

The advantage is that there are programs that dont provide a VISA. So if you are a legal permanent resident or greencard holder then you have an advantage. If they filter out the applicants with that factor then you dont need to worry. But your score, LORs, etc. will still be compared with other IMGs.

FRIEDA can be of help, not alot but to some extent, if you go through the programs in FRIEDA, you may be able to find like 20-30 programs, which will only take GC holders for IM.
