    While most programs have already invited everyone for interviews. many programs still take applications if they have an opening. We are not in the match but generally keep a spot open for the late deciders.... after the match.

    It is always better to apply early, but many make up there minds late... even in April. You and your faculty you know can help check for you.

    on that note, is there a way to find out which programs still have opening? except the post match list. I am not in school anymore so school connection is not available for me. Any help will be great :) thanks

    You can ask a current student... often a student will post the list on this forum.

    In the mean time start preparing you material - essay, transcripts (student copies will do at first... offical will be needed later), board scores, see if you can line up letters of recommendations....

    good luck

    There will probably be plenty of empty positions after the match, although probably less than last year. Unfortunately, there is usually a reason why these positions are open.

    Could you elaborate on that? I thought new GPR/AEGD programs open up every year, unless there is a new trend of more graduating students applying to these programs.

    There might be a possible position at St. Elizabeth’s GPR program in Youngstown OH. Contact the program.
    Best Regards
