Question Some questions about the Prematch

Hello everyone! I just have a few questions about prematching.

I am a IMG and I heard that as IMG's we are able to prematch.

1) Do we need to have step 1, 2CK, and 2CS completed in order to be eligible to prematch or even match?
2) By what date do we have to apply in order to be eligible for prematching? (is it before or by SEPT 1st, 2012 :S)
3) What are the PROS and CONS of prematching?

Please let me know if anyone of you has had any experience with this matter.

There's no criteria or requirement or eligibility or any official stuff related to prematching.

Prematching is solely at the discretion of each residency program, they can offer to whomever they like.
