    I am so nervous, but also so relieved. Tomorrow is the first day of the rest of my life.

    Good luck everyone!

    Does anyone know when programs find out who matched into their programs?

    This is what I was looking for.

    go to my reports --> regional match statistics. It will break down how many positions went unfilled.

    Congratulations all who matched. I'm sure I had an anxiety induced bp increase just from reading this thread and I've already gone through this process. :smuggrin:

    Now best of luck on Thursday!

    ...and wow, over on the EM forum, it looks like they didn't have any unmatched EM spots (just a few EM/IM).

    I think they will get filled throughout this week if the programs stick to the SOAP rules.

    I have to admit, I don't quite get the whole gist of SOAP...nor do I really want to at this point. :smuggrin:

    Really a Chicago program? That's very surprising, let alone 3 in one place.

    I thought I remember a new rule this year was that programs couldn't purposely go unfilled to accept outside match deals.

    That would be the main reason I would think that many spots would go unfilled. *shrug*

    i think programs find out thursday at noon, but aren't allowed to say anything or communicate about it until 1pm friday. regarding the apparently unfilled positions, don't count on those numbers being accurate. the past several years there have been "false positives," with programs only appearing to have unmatched spots. congrats to everyone that matched!

    I guess this is a great example of "false positives." Robert Wood Johnson did not participate in the Match this year and did not accept applications (this is per their program coordinator).

    Hi Everybody,
    Congratulations to all successful matchers. This posting is most useful to unmatched applicants who will be finished with PGY-1 in summer 2012. I am a current research fellow at St. Louis University in St. Louis, MO. There is a posting for our 1st year position on SDN. The deadline for research fellow applications is quickly approaching 4/2/2012. Thanks for your interest.
