    I'm not sure where actual stats are posted. However, Cards is a match, but with a few caveats. One to keep in mind is something I learned from my friends who went thru the latest match. While interviewing, programs may advertise X number of positions available, but when it comes time for the match, they may only "post" or put into play only a certain number of those positions. So a program will tell a candidate to definitely rank them highly because the program plans to rank that candidate highly as well -- but when the program only posts half the number of spots they originally said they would, someone gets screwed. You need to play the game smart and right, and cover the spread.
