Info Prematch Programs

Hey. Are programs still offering prematches? I know they started the 'all in' rule last year, is that still valid? How do we find out if a program is a prematch program or not? When is the best time to schedule interviews for such programs? Towards the end?
Does anyone know if the peds programs at Flushing Hospital and New York Methodist are prematch programs? I can't find them on nrmp

Pre-Match does exist, but the number of programs have decreased. The best way to know is if they mention it on their website, but many do not until you apply and when they send an IV invite, they mention in the email that they are Pre-Match only.

Bronx-Lebanon and Coney Island didn't mention in their e-mail that they are prematch programs. But everyone thinks they are. Have you heard if they are going for prematch this year?

I don't know but they should have. If you know they have in the past and are possibly this cycle too, then call them to verify. It's important.

Oh ok. I checked mine again. I guess the earlier e-mails did not have that. Thanks for letting us know!
