Default Paperwork issues matched IMG's

Has anyone had experience or started seeing the paperwork required to get a temporary license where the matched. I don't have the required psychiatry rotation the state asks for. Does anyone have any idea as to what people do in these cases? Also my medical school was 5 years including internship year, and Illinois requires 6 years postgraduate training. Does anyone have experience with that or other issues? Has anyone ever heard of someone matching and then not meeting requirements?

is this paperwork is supposed to be done or started by ourselves or the programs ??

and which States are these? Illinois and what?

my advice is to find a classmate who is matched at the same state or practicing there
or ask the PC herself
