Default Prematch

every one is aware of the new prematch policy.
according to it either a program will offer all their positions in match or will offer all their positions in prematch in which case they will not be able to offer any position in main i.e. NRMP match.
so some programs which used to offer prematch heavily may continue to do so.
if anyone has any idea how to know about those programs and how to apply for them, then please share your insights.

You can check on FREIDA, while searching for the programs, you have to choose "not participating in NRMP". There are some 14 programs I think that are going all prematch this year.

well if you use freida & choose one of the following options for programs i.e.
1. participate in eras but nor in nrmp - 3 programs matched
2. neither participate in eras nor in nrmp - 2 programs matched

how did you come up with 14 programs?

how can we apply to these programs?

are these programs genuine?
