Based on my experience last year, talk a littel on 面试与match关系的一点看法:
1. The quantity and quality of IVs you get usually reflects how competitive
you are in this match;
2. Most low-tier IM programs filled majority of their positions by pre-match.
Some programs even filled up their positions before the end of December
and cancelled all interviews scheduled later than that date;
3. Programs with unfilled positions are not necessarily low-tier programs,
and most possibly not at all. They just do not rank that many candidates.
4. It is almost impossible for IMGs to scramble into any slot in the three
official scramble days. The only one exception is that when you have a PGY-2
partial match, it is relatively easy to get a prelim IM position. And
actually this is why most programs are not willing to fill their prelim
positions through match. Because they want to get someone who are sure to
have second year offer.
Having said that, I want to mention two points:
1. It is really boring to get more than five IVs from programs at the same
low level, you are totally confused how to choose among them and you are
also disappointed that all your IVs are just the same.
2. Everyone here should still remember that quite a few ppl matched with
only one IV. On the other hand, I also know someone failed match with more
than ten IVs.

Jimmy has made a very good point: the number of iv reflects how competitive
we are facing--
Here is the data from 2006 match(for IMG):
with 10 interviews in one specialty, there is 80% of chance to get matched.
with 14 interviews in one specialty, the chance is above 95%.
