    Where did you match on your ROL (2018 Match)?

    Hey everybody! I saw this post last year as a way to calm the nerves (i suppose) of applicants and thought it would be interesting to see some updated results. Again, this is all in 'good' fun so please take the poll with a grain of salt! Edit: So far so good!

    Ranking Advice

    Hey SDN, I am a MS4 who is really struggling to make my rank order list. I have a lot of great options but an paralyzed by indecision.

    How to pick/rank your OMS residencies, from a senior resident.

    I've been meaning to post this for a year or so, but here it goes. One thing matters when you rank your options. One thing above all else. You'll encounter a lot of advice and methodology for ranking programs; people will record sedations, talk about osteotomy numbers, talk about their areas of...

    Do residency programs have the same rank order list deadline (March 3) as applicants?

    The only reason I am asking this is because I am currently on rotation at one of the programs I interviewed with. And just to make this clear: I have absolutely no intention of slacking after the deadline passes. I am aware of the advice to treat all rotations "like an interview" and I have...

    The order of your Rank Order List

    I got into a discussion about this today. Does the order of your rank order list influence your probability of overall matching vs not matching. I'm talking about a list with all the same programs and therefore number of programs. Does the order you put your programs in affect your chances of...

I took an extra year in school because of a very legitimate health reason (not psych). I...

    Hi. I am an IMG with average credentials. I was just wondering if my chance of matching would depend on the order in which I ranked programs. For example, if I rank great programs at the top and mediocre programs at the bottom, would it decrease my chance of matching (matching in general, not...
