It has not been decided yet. It's still under review by the Senate committee.

So as of now, we can assume that the slots are not increasing n in 2013 the new 4000 American grads will occupy the IMGs' slots...right?

Thanks for the information Steptaker. I'd been waiting for this for sometime now. Do you have any idea abt when a decision might be made, how many seats might be increasing every year, etc. Personally, what do you think are the chances for this to be passed?

Personally, I think there's a good chance that it will pass. The reason being, there's extreme shortage of physicians all over US and they have to do something about it even if the economy is going down.
