    I echo meimg, I have red flags as well and I was able to land some IVs. Make sure you reach out to programs that you may have a connection with, for example any ties you may have to certain geographical locations would be a great place to start. If you know residents in certain programs, make sure you reach out to them also. As it is implied, be cordial when contacting these programs as they are getting slammed with 1000s of applications. Realistically, it's hard to reach out to all programs that you applied. However, it's worth giving it a shot and contacting programs with any sort of personal connection you may have with them. Hope this helps and continue to keep faith.

    Thank you. Im sorry, hopefully it turns around for everyone. I might cancel my 2 FM if I get a handful more of IM.

    I only applied to family so I am hoping to get a few more at least. According to the NRMP data, 5 interviews increases my chances from 35% to about 45% of matching. It would be more for peace of mind tbh lol.

    Thanks! Yes both programs still had interview slots because I was offered multiple dates. It looks like the IVs for us IMGs are slowly trickling in right now, so everyone hang in there!

    I got this from them today :(

    Good afternoon,

    We would like to thank you for applying to our program. As you may know, this has been a very competitive application cycle for family medicine, and our program is no different. Our program is currently fully booked for interviews and we have a growing waitlist. We continue to review applications, and if you are selected for an interview we will contact you directly through ERAS.

    I also received the same email from Beaumont. That has me a bit concerned because it seems to be a fairly IMG friendly program judging by their current residents.

    I know right, I feel like at this point most of the programs are full. Was waiting for November to get interviews, and now have to wait for people to cancel to get interviews. Hope is all I am living on.

    I agree. I think we are at the point where most IV have been given to the best candidates, and now we are left waiting for cancellations and picking up the scraps. I'm fine with this, but it is unfortunate lol. I think its Letter of Intent time :smack:

    I don't think Letter of Intent emails will help much because most of the interview invites are taken soooo we will have to wait for cancellations and leftovers :/

    I sent an LOI to a program I had a good chance at and I got an interview a few days later. Probably a cancellation because there were only two dates. USIMG.

    I want to echo the above posts in reference to the Beaumont program. I received the same generic message too.

    Got another IV, this one is at Rush Copley.

    After around 10 weeks since Sept 15th., I only applied to FM, because it's what I wanted. Is it maybe sort of time to plan for next year?
