Default *VISA status*(important)

Hi all,

my question is about an applicantís current visa status.
in most programís general information there is the following sentence:
IMGs should have, among other qualifications, one or more of the following
(if you click on the following link you,you'll find out)


Does that mean currently holding a F visa precludes one as an applicant?
Cause i've heard people apply for match holding a tourist visa, and the thing is that when a program offers H/J visa they are applying for a "change of status" and when so it shouldn't matter what your current status is.
