There's a growing number of companies that are helping residency applicants prepare for the match.

They all started sending out there email campaigns to attract students preparing for the residency scramble season due in a couple of months.

Here's a list of these services and you make your choice!

How does it work?

Hi,
Can someone please explain how these companies help you find a residency spot during the scramble period because I thought that once the list of unfilled spots is released, those spots are filled on that same day by 4pm.
So how do these companies work in getting you in soo fast?
And, do IMGs stand a chance during the scramble, or do most of the unfilled spots go to the unmatched AMGs?

Thank you!

Answering tima

Electronic residency helps by streamlining the emails that you send and thereby makes you faster.
The other companies just increase your knowledge and awareness of how the scramble match work.

The possibility to get matched during the scramble is slim for both IMGs and AMGs, last year the ratio was 1:12, one got matched out of 12 applicants!

And yes, you are right, AMGs have much higher chance than IMGs during the scramble and one of the reasons is that IMG friendly programs usually have no unfilled positions and therefore they don't go through the scramble.
