Default Chances are very slim, but possible.

your chances will be significantly reduced. By january, the match season is usually over. I am going through individual requirements of programs these days, and in the 150 IMG friendly programs that i have come across, i would say about 5-10 programs probably don't require IMGs to be ecfmg certified before sending interviews, the rest of them (about 95%) have mentioned that for IMGs, ecfmg certification is required.
I wish you best of luck for your match.
