    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!

    Do you think PDs may be in bed with hospitals??

    I interviewed with several hospitals and I got a very nice, hand written post-interview love letter from my second ranked program. My home PD pushed me a lot to change my second ranked school to my top preference so I would for sure match. Every time I said it was my second best but somehow...

    May have shot myself in the foot...

    I received post-interview communication from several PDs and one of the schools I received an email from was very convincing. I decided to rank them slightly higher than I had intended but ultimately I did not end up placing with them. Overall I wasn’t very satisfied with my placement and I...

    Interested in hearing from others!!

    I just received my matching result and I am very happy with the outcome. I got advice from my home PD to list a particular school at the top and I did. She worked hard for me to get an interview with this school and gave me guarantees that they would rank me high enough so if I put them at the...

    Disappointing match

    I am very heartbroken :( I ended up placing at my worst school. I really did not expect to be here. I received tons of positive post-interview communication and decided to follow up on some of it and let it sway my school rankings. I really feel like I am the only one who could have made this...

    Residency: inpt consult months

    My dear physiatry ppl, I'm having last-minute re-considerations about my top choices for PM&R residency. They are fairly strong academic institutions, though I don't want to practice inpatient rehab exclusively. I actually made my ROL with the idea that I'll get minimal or near-minimal (per...

    I have a confirmation email from 9:00, but it still says "ranking" and not certified.. I was switching back and forth between my two top spots + kept re-certifying. I know, stupid stupid stupid mistake.. Is this even heard of? I'm sick to my stomach.

    Variation in chance of matching based on Rank Order List?

    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...
