So you mean that we should not use matcharesident or the img friendly list in this website?
I mean use them only to cross match with the list you made yourself. To confirm programs and sometimes to add programs you may have missed. but the important list is the list you made from your own efforts and research.So you mean that we should not use matcharesident or the img friendly list in this website?
So I did not understand you.I have used it and has saved me a lot of time. As a FMG when you are strapped for time studying for USMLE, you cannot sit and call each program. Some do not even pick up the phone and websites are outdated. Use these list as the base, filter them and then finalize the program you are going to apply for, then call them or email them.
Saved me many hours personally for a few dollars. I used residency-match.
Did you mean a list for the scramble done after the match?How to get the program list for applying post match!

I think NRMP provides a report which is updated every hour with programs removed as they get filled. Some one please correct me if I am wrong.yes! I mean the programs that remain vacant after match !

Here is a poll from a forum of scramble service used/available:
I have not used any of these services, so I do not know about any one of them.
- IMG residency = 16.6%
- FMG America = 0.3%
- Residency Place = 13.5%
- Electronic Residency = 21.1%
- IMG Prep = 4.4%
- Others = 1.6%
- Doing it By Myself = 42.5%
Last year when I scrambled I used the NRMP list to call up the programs.
In my experience, as an IMG chances of matching through scramble is very low. On the day of scramble, chaos prevails and your chances of calling (and talking to a live human) more than 10 programs is unlikely. This was my experience. As an IMG if you did not match then it in not probable that you will match during scramble.What are the chances of getting matched in scramble if one is an IMG and on visit visa?
It's about your medical school (not your citizenship), once you are not from a US medical school you are considered IMG and you need to find and IMG friendly program.Does an applicant's citizenship or residency status affect a program's IMG-friendliness?
In other words, when these friendly and non friendly lists of programs are made, are they based on a program's history of accepting international graduates or non citizens?
