anyone know the reason there's such a long delay between list submission in mid-late Feb (ie, this Wednesday evening) and Match Day almost a month later? I was told the computer algorithm takes only about 10 minutes to run - so why the delay? why doesn't the computer do its thing next Monday, scramble start Tuesday, and then Match Day next Thursday? anyone know of a specific reason for the gap, or is this just the way the NRMP has decided to run things?
