It does not matter. Med schools do not differentiate btw PR and Citizen.

i believe not. that being a resident is enough as far as i know

I don't think it would make a difference for admissions. Both citizens and permanent residents can stay in the US legally.

If you ever want to do electives or medical missions in other countries, there could be difference in procedures between citizens and permanent residents with regards to visas for foreign travel.
