    You're from NY, so you know that residency education directors in your area are very familiar with Sackler, as well as DO programs. Where do you go to school and why?

    I would go to Sackler, it seems like a great school/experience, if there was nothing holding me back in the states.

    Sackler is in Israel right? I assume that you will still be a FMG? I really don't think either way would hurt you, but personally I would go DO.

    NY is a very DO friendly state and there would be many opportunities for you.

    I dont have any proof to back this up, but I am pretty sure that I have heard that graduates receive pretty competitive residency spots in and around the NY area. But like army doc said, you would be a fmg. Although it is not that bad coming from such a technologically and medically advanced country. I would try to find a match list, or possibly talk to former students?
