Default question about SOAP

I just want to know what the odds are for IMGs participating in SOAP in matching, cause what I heard is that SOAP basically benefits AMGs & IMGs has close to nil chances.
if anybody have any insight about that.

I have heard similar things as well, and I think these views are based on the data that was released by NRMP last year which showed the statistics for SOAP and who were those people who ultimately got matched after entering SOAP.

so if an img don't match in the main match, he might as well forget about it this year & don't get his hopes up for nothing cause the odds are pretty slim, right?
