    I asked: “Will I match with ‘x’ (my top site)?” and it said “Outlook not good.” LOL - thanks for nothing, Oracle!

    You aren’t alone
    I think this goes back to like we said internship has been drummed up so much - also we have had way too much time to stew and over analyze
    I’m sure anyplace you ranked would be great for you once that subsides!
    That being said there are some super awesome sites in phase 2 and lots of stories about people getting sites then that hadn’t even interviewed them before
    So I get that

    I’ve adapted a “trust in the match and fate” approach

    I'm sitting here watching my infant child, who is just learning how to reach for objects, in a bouncer chair batting at colorful toys that are JUST out of grasp. He keeps trying to grab them, but is not quite coordinated enough to accomplish anything but bat them further away. He then throws up his hands in exasperation and brings them to his mouth to self-soothe. I am identifying with his struggle HARD. Match day is just out of reach, I am unable to do anything to make it come any sooner, and I plan to self-soothe with ice cream that I unashamedly had delivered to my door last night.

    Just want to say best of luck tomorrow! My match email came at 8:14 AM EST a few years back -- not much longer to wait. I also hope many of you will stick around and continue to be active on the board -- your mutual support and positivity has been great to witness.

    In preparation for tomorrow aka D day, anybody know if we can apply to sites (in phase 2) that may have rejected us during interview invites in phase 1? Just wanna be prepared in case things go south : /

    You can apply to any site in Phase II if you get to that point.

    I want that goat. If I had that goat I would feel better about waiting for tomorrow, I think.

    Not only am I waiting for Match Day, but I’m also 38 weeks 3 days pregnant and wondering when I’m going into labor. All this waiting is killing me. I have control over nothing. This is my life now.

    Dang, mama! And here I've been complaining about my baby's sleep schedule changing...you are AMAZING! I hope you're getting tons of TLC from your people right now. You deserve it extra much.
    This post is my favorite.

    You are a rock star. I’ve been doing this with two tiny humans, but I can’t imagine getting through this pregnant. All the props to you, mama!

    As someone who once had even just one infant I was responsible for, I can’t help but imagine you had the worst pregnancy ever if you feel this way.

    ETA: not that pregnancy isn’t hard, but dude, two babies...:scared:

    Depending on where in the country you are and how efficient the match email is this year: approximately 16-18 hours. More than 15 but definitely less than 20 :wtf:

    Good luck tomorrow everyone. I am sending positive vibes your way. I did not match my first year applying, but it allowed me to work on my dissertation, gain more teaching experience, and get a publication. I was very geographically retreated the first year I applied. The second year I applied, I applied very broadly and ended up in the geographical area that I wanted originally at a good name internship. It is funny how things work out. So just remember that even if you do not match, your future is stikk likely bright, although it stings for a while.

    Thank you - people are often hesitant to share experiences like this, and it helps to be reminded of it, and to hear it without shame or whatnot. Really appreciate it.

    dear @slaney haikus must come by nature
    but i hope you all enjoy this instead


    ’Twas the night before match day
    When all through the land
    The applicants were waiting, glass of alcohol in hand

    They caught up on forum
    Quoted one post (or two)
    and watched the olympics
    Dreams really can come true!

    As the clock struck midnight
    Their chests grew much tighter
    “It’s time for bed” I suppose
    So tomorrow will be brighter

    Sleep hygiene in mind they thought
    This I can do
    Best of luck to you applicants
    May your (good) match dreams come true

    I relate to that on a deep level right now. I was reading the comments section of a random facebook meme about pets and one woman was writing about her neighbors cat who would come up to her house every day for breakfast and dinner and he stopped passing by a few months prior to her post. She was concerned about him but didn't want to ask her neighbors because she didn't want to hear that he died. She finally asked a few weeks after her initial post and found out that he was hit by a car and died a few hours later from the injuries. I almost cried. Stick a fork in me, I'm done. :dead:
