Some applicants go to the match as couples (which is a known option in the ERAS/NRMP system). Here is the outcome of those applied in 2009 as couple:
1-Number of couples: 788 (1576 individuals)
2-Number of couples who matched (both individuals): 706
3-Number of couples who matched only one of the individuals: 55
4-Number of couples who didn't match any individual (both out): 27
5-This means that the Couple Match rate is 93.1% which is significantly high.

Unfortunately they didnt specified whether the couples were AMGs or IMGs. Taking into consideration that some of these couples are formed of AMGs married to IMGs, I think the NRMP task will not be easy in classifying.

One time I got so desperate that I was pondering on collaborating an authentic relationship with one of my friends in order to try "couples match". This was after reading that 'friends' could apply for a couples match, not only actual romantic relationships. I tried it again, worked on what I lacked the year prior, and finally got in. I was under the impression however that a couple's match may up the chances of getting a position... still not sure however.
