if by post match you mean soap, you probably have low chances.
SOAP is mainly geared towards AMGs, and although it is not unheard of IMG securing positions through soap, your best bet is still through the main match!

Good luck!!! i hope you get certified soon!

If I were you, I wouldnt apply this season, too late, but you can shine for the next, taking Step 3 and boosting your portfolio with USCE, research etc,
Good luck!
