Listening IMG/FMG perspectives for Match 2015-2016

Hi guys!
What do you think about perspectives for an IMG in 2015-2016 match? I've read a couple of articles (can't find this exact one right now), quite disturbing actually. Some surveys were made and it comes clear that less and less IMG's can go through the match and find a residency right now. And the tendency gets only worse. By the year 2019 (as I've read in this article I can't find, yeah, sounds stupid, I know) the number of AMG's (american graduates) will overcome the number of residencies available, so that IMG's will have nothing to do. Right now I'm a 3rd year student. The earliest Match I can take will be 2015. Should I start all the prep and stuff? Or I'll just lose about 10k on passing all the steps (including Step 2 CS) and won't make it through the match? Please share your opinins, insiders are welcome! Thanks for your attention.
