I am not an expert nor have I applied for the match yet but from what i have seen it all comes down to two things
1. luck
2. How bad you want this.
I have had a senior from my med school who has been applying for the match for the last four seasons... Everyone advised him to apply to some other country or continue back home but he continued with the journey doing reasearch observorships community*service and what not.... His research was not paid so he had to do odd jobs to support him financially throughout... But last season he got matched to one of the top programs in IM... Dont wanna sound cheesy here but the lesson learnt is that follow your dreams.. as they say there is always light at the end of the tunnel.. You just have to follow.. About your friends chances no one can give you an accurate answer to that... Some people match with attempts some dont even with double 99.... Its not just the scores its the whole applications who knows what they are gonna like.. So my advise to your friend will be to start preparing for the interview season and to utilise any opportunity that pops up along the way to further polish his application... All the best
