Default SOAP 2015 for IMG - The sound of silence?

Hey everyone...so not bouncing off the walls right now like so many other people.

SOAP was applied for right out the gate at 1pm. Phone has been silent. Is anyone hearing anything yet, or will tomorrow be a more likely time to get any sorts of communication?

Total radio silence. Is it possible to get offers without any prior interviews during SOAP? Because as far as I understand, programs will want to interview us before extending offers. I hope it's not so.

as an IMG don't know if thats a good thing or a bad thing, but still somewhat reassuring...

Hey guys..

I cannot imagine how incredibly stress it us for all of you.. I wish you all the very, very best. Prepare yourself mentally so if you get a phone interview you will sound confident and can give thoughtful answer.

Good luck!

If they do not do phone interviews then how are we interviewed? Is it possible to get offers without interviews? Also, will they contact us via email or what?
And how do we know whether programs have downloaded our application? Sorry for so many questions.

Somebody mentioned on another thread here in this forum that very few IMGs succeed in SOAP. Hope we beat the odds and be those few IMGs iA!! Fingers crossed

According to the NRMP, communication can start after 11:30 am eastern. DO programs actually follow these rules?

Life is cruel.
I received a call on my alternate phone number listed (home), and not on my primary cell phone I have listed. My mother informed them that I was in transit to school and that I would be available by cell phone. They verified the number and said they will be in touch shortly. I have been staring at my phone all day. No call back.
How do you live with this sort of anxiousness?

Thats why it helps to have a spiritual faith you relay on. This whole process is nonsense and I would even say that It could drive some people into mental Illness.... But seeing things like what just happened in your case, in which the whole situation is totally out of your control, (Ie, there is nothing you can do that will make it better or worse), I would just encourage you to seat back, and believe that God will do what he has enstored for you in its due time. If you happen not to be religious, then believe that things happen for a reason, or whatever you may believe, you need to believe in something my friend!!! Otherwise your emotions will be all over the place... And that honestly sucks! the best thing one can have in this kind of situatios is peace of mind

Oh I am with you there. This is my 3rd time. I am a Canadian, Caribbean IMG. Scores are fine. Never failed. Good letters. I have a Masters degree.

I have asked numerous people, experts, mentors and everyone says the same thing. Its all about luck. Its not you its the system.

I am so so tired.

Its about the journey my friend, Im not with God for him to help me match, Its a personal relationship I have with Him that helps me view things in a different way. Notice its all about the way you see things. You might come up with a different reasoning to do the exact same thing, and if it gives you peace of mind. Use it whatever works for you. I just mentioned because that Is what worked for me. (If our friend above is not carefull, he might end up blaming his mother for the rest of his life, and that is not a desired outcome) But enough of that, I dont want to turn the discussion away from the match related stuff.
Greetings.

Well since it's almost 5 pm EST, and I'm assuming that all official work ends at this time, I guess there will be no interviews today. Perhaps next year is our year

So lets say by some miracle you get more than 1 offer: can you accept all of them? Because from how I understand it getting an offer isnt a guarantee for a spot seeing as programs make lists for applicants.

I don't think you can accept more than one offer. From my knowledge offers are binding and are extended to as many people as there are spots. If you accept one offer, the rest of your offers will be rejected and it will be sent to others down the rank list in the next round. That's what I think. I may be wrong.

That seems to be about right.

I have a couple of quick questions. Is it possible to apply to more than one specialty? I'm sure it would only require a slight tweaking of the personal statemnt which I'm sure nobody would read at this point :O
Also, does OB/GYN also have preliminary and categorical training? I was under the impression that only IM, Pediatrics and Surgery had that.
Also, when can we apply for round 2?

I am not sure about OBG. We can apply to any number of specialities now. And 2.30 pm ET is when we can send in the last 10 applications. I wonder if they have called a single IMG this time.

So technically we can apply right now for round 2? Wont the NRMP update the list of unfilled positions first so that we dont end up applying somewhere that would have filled up from round 1?

Round 2 starts 2;30 pm est, so if you would apply now, i think you would be applying as part of round 1.

If you have applied to 35 programs you will not be able to apply to any other till 2.30 EST. ERAS will be locked till then.

Still says "offers are being generated for the current round"

Same for everyone else? Some of the SDN folks got offers already even though that message is still showing up.

I think there is a delay in generating all the offers. Thats why the offers are still coming.

How many of you have had interviews and expecting offers?

Maybe they need to upgrade their system's RAM

Lucky you, I can't even open the live chat. It closes every time I log into it finally. Please let us know if you get any information

I don't think there has been a single IMG on this forum (or any other forum I've seen) who's been contacted to do an interview. I could be wrong.

Updated for me: You have no offers this round


Someone in the SDN forum received an offer without ANY contact from the program. So anything is possible. Keeping fingers crossed for other rounds!

God has a plan for all of us and sometimes, it may not be as doctors in the US, or maybe just not YET. Obviously, not everyone who applies gets to be matched. But for those who didn't, it doesn't mean God abandoned them. Maybe it's an opportunity he gives them to grow in some other aspect of their life or maybe he's leading them to another possibility that might actually turn out to be better for them. There's always a place and role that God intends for each of us and all of them are good and dignified regardless of how we view it by our human minds. For those who believe in God, everything works for the good.

I agree with abrutus: my faith in God - an omnipotent and omnibenevolent being who guides all creatures to their best end (granting they allow him to by their free will) - allowed me to cope during a failure throughout this matching process. I failed in the CS and I thought it was going to badly hurt my chances for the match especially since I'm an IMG. Of course I still cried my eyes out that time but I didn't give up believing that God has a better plan for me. This helped me pick up the pieces and move on with my life. I got up and tried again.

This doesn't mean being passive and blaming God for every seemingly bad turn of events. It means actively using all the resources God has given us to pursue that place God intends for us. In my case, I thought I just needed to strengthen my resume with more USCE and LORs. So I did just that and prayed hard. Eventually, I still matched.

To those who didn't match, I think I can relate to how you feel right now. But don't give up and carry on. Find something worthwhile to do in the meantime as you try other things to improve your CV. Many applicants before you also failed and yet matched after subsequent attempts. I myself know a few. It is not a hopeless situation.

Don't blame God but instead ask him for strength and guidance for the next best steps. Entrust your life to him and as a good father, he will direct your paths and lead you to your best place. It's not the end of the road. Good things still await you.

Great story and congrats on matching

Had everything to do with your hard work and nothing to do with an imaginary guy in the sky

Glad you matched but it was you hard work which paid off

Congrats! Atleast one of us was able to get through. Have you interviewed at the program earlier from which you got an offer?
