Arrow My opinion

Mostly AMGs.

IMG Friendly programs usually do not end with unfilled positions.

AMG-only Universities usually set up high expectation for themselves and rank only super candidates and therefore frequently end up with unfilled positions.

However, and it's a bid however, that does not mean that IMGs can't get into programs via SOAP because technically it's not exclusive for AMGs.

STEP TAKER, please how true is it that program choose at the beginning of the match if they want to participate in SOAP? meaning that SOAP is not a default position for unfilled programs.
