Default People matching in university programs IM, please share your credentials?

Hey I'm a US img; done with step 1 250, interested in doing residency at a university program. It would be helpful if people share their credentials here for every one's benefit. Thanks in advance!

Hey there and congrats for the match. But haven't they stopped pre-matches? So I've heard!

Nope, programs can still prematch. It is simply an all or nothing policy. They must either get all of their positions within the match or OUT of the match. Prematching programs is the exception, not the rule.

2016 is quoted as "the year" that the number of US kids will jump higher than the normal trend 2/2 the new US schools dumping students. It'll be interesting to see what happens now with the DO/MD combining and how many programs will roll out right away. My suggestion is always match as soon as possible. It is only getting harder year after year and programs are cutting out USIMG/FMG, even with great scores. Nothing is impossible but it is getting harder every year.
