Info No more Pre-Match??

My question is regarding the pre match offer.. do you know if some programs still offer pre match positions or not? I am an IMG looking for 2015-2015 match.

Well, for 2013 programs were required to match all their applicants or to obtain their interns by offering them a contract to sign outside of the match. This can easily change from given that last year it was not this way.

One advice I can give to you, from one IMG to another is: HURRY. Also, study every day using question blocks, do not waste time on things like procrastinating, going to parties, etc. Your job now is to study, hopefully with the support of your family (i.e not having to work).

Yes they do offer prematch however only some programs. The deal is if a program does prematch all the spots have to be prematch.
