Unfortunatly yes. Around 60 % of IMGs match, in contrast to the around 95% of AMGs.

And this is the number for IMG that actually submitted a ROL. There are lots of IMG that applied but as they haven't got any IV, they didn't submit a rol and therefore are out of the statistics.
So the number is worst than that.

Agree. I know plenty of ppl who applied but didnt get any IVs. I would say 40-45% match non us and then maybe 45 % us img.

There were only 38% of the seats filled by IMGs last year. Dont know what percentage was US citizen and non-US. Every year the percentage is dropping. Just makesure you get your rotations /exams done and apply as soon as possible.
