Default IMG Residency matching 2013

Hey guys,

since everybody keeps asking questions like "I have a score of 2XX, do I have chances to match?" I created this thread.
To put it short:
1. Stop asking.
2. Read this: http://b83c73bcf0e7ca356c80-e8560f46...d.PDF-File.pdf

Best regards

PneuX thanks for the update!!
Not trying to speculate but can you please tell me what effect the increase in number of AMGs will have on the IMG intake from next year onwards?
I tried to search about it but couldn't find anything.

Just to put it out there...be wary of reading those graphs like "i scored 240 therefore i have a 60% chance of matching"

Still much better than the tried but vey much untested crystal ball technique often employed around here.

Or worse...the "i failed step 1 4 times but people keep telling me to follow my dream" mentality.
