there are some programs that offer prematch.

you have to use freida and search them . also there was a thread on here before.

basically by looking at who got prematch this year, it looks like 240+ on both steps.

St.Barnabas NY and NJ was one program and many more like 10 in total in IM I believe that sponsor Visas.

the programs are either all in or all out. meaning if they prematch they have to fill all their spots up with prematch.

Does anybody know whether there will be more programs that will decide to fill their spots through prematch for next year? I really hope that's the case because considering how competitive the match will be, prematching doesn't seem like a bad option after all.

we will know Sept 1st. Programs have upto Feb 22 2014 to do prematch or not. but most if not all, most will be available on sept 1st.

I think the programs that went unfilled this year for soap will do prematch.

That's up to you to decide. See if you like the program and go with your gut.
