Listening Overseas Residency or US observerships!

Dear all
I am a US citizen IFMG, planning for the 2013 match but not sure what to do?
should I stay overseas and get into a residency program for a year or
should I come to the US for Observerships and research in order to get a US experience. please help me decide what would increase my chances?

Definitely USCE is better regarded than any residency overseas.
