Probability Is it Game Over?

Many friends are asking me whether there's still a chance of being invited for an interview now that we entered December.

The reality is yes 90% of the interview slots are filled by now but there's now the wave of cancellations.

Those IMGs who've accepted a prematch will now call the rest of their scheduled interviews to cancel and those applicants who have scheduled too many interviews that now they decided to cancel those who are not willing to match in.

So if you are a second level applicant, such as an old IMG, or if you have low scores then you have a chance of being called next week for an interview.

The chance is not so high but it's not zero%.

So keep the spirit up guys
