People are calling for it, so here it is. Don't feel the need to post ASAP, I just had some time to make the thread today so here it is. Per SDN tradition, here is this year's Rank Order List (ROL) thread. There are a number of ways in which you may participate: By using your SDN account and directly replying to this thread By using your SDN account to private message (PM) @doggydog . Your ROL will be posted anonymously By using the anonymous Google Form created for this thread. No SDN or email account required. Format: I want this to be done a bit differently this year, it is extremely evident that EM applicants have a tough time gauging how competitive they are for this specialty. I want to make the attempt to make this process more clear by using this thread to show applicants in the future how competitive they may be for getting interviews at certain programs/getting interviews in general. This can be done by this year's applicants providing as much information about themselves as they are willing. I would like approximate STEP scores, EM rotation grades, AOA status, etc. If you don't feel comfortable providing that information, it's fine, just provide as much info as you can. If you don't want to provide too much information until match day, you can always send the information to me and I'll edit the post or you can quote the post and add it yourself. Include a description of your thinking process/priorities you considered to create your rank order list (i.e., 3- vs. 4-year program, community vs. county, location, reputation, residents/faculty, work hours, etc.). This is tremendously important for future applicants as they are trying to determine which programs they are applying to List the programs you are ranking in their respective numerical order, providing a brief summary of cons/pros you considered for each Best of luck to everyone! __________________________ Helpful Links: Anonymous Google Form 2015 - 2016 ROL thread: https://forums.studentdoctor.net/threads/2015-2016-em-rank-order-list-thread.1179297/ Let me know if the google form doesn't work for anyone.
