    There is a lot of supporting evidence, but in no way has it been "conclusively proven."

    2500 Uscf would be 2400 Fide, which is IM-strength

    Actually FIDE ratings are higher than USCF.

    1600 FIDE = around 1500 USCF

    From http://glicko.net/ratings/rating.system.pdf.

    USCF =

    180 + 0.94 x FIDE if FIDE <= 2000
    20 + 1.02 x FIDE if FIDE > 2000

    I'm not about to read through over a thousand posts...Has anyone posted this scatter plot of USCF vs. FIDE ratings? It's a bit dated, but should still be useful.
