There's no difference in the statistics of IMGs passing in any CS center be it LA or any other.

The USMLE Exam is a standardized exam and the NBME would ring an alarm if they see passing percentage difference between the centers.

However if you insist and you'd like to follow rumors and IMG feelings and perceptions I recommend this poll
