Question What are IMGs chances in the SOAP???

Am an IMG planning on taking step1 on september and step on jan2012 with a few externships along the way(for letters of recommendations), all to apply for the SOUP since i will miss the normal match. However i just learned that in the last SOAP, only around 100-200 IMGs got matched, which was 0.5% of the total IMG applicants! Is this true? should I risk it, or just prepare for next years match??

Detailed match stats for this year aren't out yet, and therefore no one has an exact number on how many matched through the SOAP.

Obv you can try for SOAP, if things dont work out.. then you can try in the subsequent match year.
