PostSubject: Match 2008 performance : Percentage of IMGs matching this year decreases   Fri Jun 12, 2009 12:14 pm

You all would have received this newsletter from ECFMG : "2008 MATCH PERFORMANCE -- NUMBER OF IMGS MATCHING INCREASES". There is a catch in this. Though the number of IMGs matching this year was 122 more than last year, we need to look at the percentage of IMGs matching this year compared to last year. Here is the info:
Percentage of IMGs who matched in NRMP 2007: 46.7%
Percentage of IMGs who matched in NRMP 2008: 45.1%
This is the statistics which we need to worry about. I dont know why ECFMG rather focuses on the increase in number of IMGs matching this year. This number has to be obviously more as the total number of IMGs participated in Match has increased this year.
