The ECFMG has published stats about this year’s Match for IMGs. The data is not significantly different from 2008, which means it’s still not great news: In 2009 only 47.8% of U.S. citizen IMGs obtained first year positions through the Match. Of those IMGs who were not U.S. citizens, only 41.6% matched. Of course, high board scores and excellent LORs are extremely helpful. It’s also important to ensure your ERAS and personal statement are optimal for submission. Contact me for help earlier rather than later please, so I can assist you best.
