Default Number of Applicants by visa status and specialty?

Thank you for this helpful thread! Can you tell us the number of applicants by visa status and specialty as well. For example, number of non-US citizen IMG applying for FM or IM. It will help a lot to tell how competitive a specialty is.

I am a non-US citizen IMG and I want to apply for FM given my low step 1 score of 204 (I am trying my best with CK now). But the number of matched non-US IMG in FM is less than 400 while that number in IM is more than 1700. Without knowing the number of applicants, it seems FM is more competitive (harder to match) than IM for non-US IMG. Is it true?

On the other hand, number of US citizen matched IMG in FM and IM are fairly similar. Does it mean US citizen IMGs have no preference among FM and IM? Or does it mean FM programs want to recruit US citizen much more than IM programs?

Thank you again for your help!

Typically an IMG/FMG that needs visa sponsorship would fall under group 2 of the list above.

Page 2 of the report gives you total number of applicants per specialty (USMG/IMG/FMG).
