This is a major advantage for you. I know many applicants with GCs interviewed and matched in places they were not expecting. In the past few years because of the bad economy and increased restrictions on visas, PDs are giving the Cit/GCs more spots. PDs tended to save any $ they can to use it in other educational benifits for their residents, also less headaches with visa issues and processing hazards. In my site there are, inaddition to the img friendly lists in all specialties, there two additional lists in IM and FM that takes only GC/Cit applicants.
