Default IMG Matching going to be over?

Is it true that the matching positions for IMGs are declining rapidly? If yes, by when it will be completely certain that IMGs are ineligible for the positions in US?

What are you talking about?? Havent you read the last ECFMG reporter? Residency positions have been going up for the last 5 years or something, and tendency shows that it will still go up. And IMGs are increasing their % of succesfull matching. We have already passed the 50% rate (taking into account IMGs and US-citizen IMGs).

Also, this year less IMGs applied, which is a good thing. Overall, there are more positions offered, less competition (in some ways), and more chances to match.
