    Are there any positions left? I looked on the AOA post match site and didn't even see psych listed as a specialty

    Is there a formal process to accept offers during scramble?

    Hi I'm posting for my friend. She scrambled for an AOA residency position. A program she interviewed with sent her an email "Confirm address. Sending contract." Nothing more, nothing less. She replied to the email but there was no response. Is the offer posted somewhere that she must login to...

    Dilemma about choosing program vs waiting

    Ok so I applied pretty heavily to the open AOA TRI programs and have an offer (with possibly 1-2 more coming). My dilemma is that there is a new residency program likely to get accreditation but not until April and won't be accepting applications until they receive it. It's in the field I want...

    Preliminary Surgery SOAP

    I am an American Medical Student who is applying into an advanced program requiring a general surgery preliminary program. I was hoping to live in Chicago for my preliminary program, but only received one preliminary interview for Chicago, but many in cities along the West Coast. Do you...

    I'm not going to match - what steps should I be taking?

    Was under-qualified, applied to general surgery. Didn't apply to any "back-ups" because it was my life and I was sure I would do anything to be a surgeon. Fast-forward a few months and surgery lost it's luster in December (after doing a few aways) but by then it was too late to apply to other...

    Feeling bummed on matching bottom tier TRI

    Congrats on all those who matched, and my deepest apologies to those who didn't. I know how dreadful not matching can be and maybe it's a bit insensitive for me to post this. I went for PM&R this year as a DO with COMLEX only, no red flags. I interviewed at some middle to high tier programs. I...

    Unmatched DO Applicant

    So I got the bad news today. Didn't match Ortho in the Osteopathic match. Thought about doing EM and applied to it, but decided way late that I'd rather scramble than commit to a life of ER medicine. So I am stuck in a seriously bad place. Still haven't accepted any DO positions such as TRI's...

    Rotation Attendance On Match Day

    Is anyone taking the day off of rotation for match day? I'm thinking if I do match I'll be too excited to focus on patient care and if I don't match I'll need to put all my energy into phase II match. Thoughts or previous experience with this?

    Not everyone thrilled with second match

    Interesting op-ed appearing in the new issue of AJPE. http://www.ajpe.org/doi/full/10.5688/ajpe808144 I don't agree with their argument that more residency programs are needed, but the authors make some good points about some unintended consequences of eliminating the scramble.

    NRMP questions

    This is so confusing so let me tell you what happened after the osteopathic match today and then ask questions. I did NOT take the USMLE and did NOT match today. I applied to as many programs as I could in the scramble but haven't heard back yet, although I do have an interview on Thursday. I...
