    I matched and am, of course, very happy.

    But more importantly, did sga403 match? lol

    His entertaining posts kept me going through this hectic match season.

    The chances of him not matching are very very slim. Plus there are a lot of open categorical positions.

    Given his ROL and the fact that there are 57 unfilled positions, I'd say that his chances of not matching are close to zero.

    Yeah, I've been thinking about him too.

    Yes, the regional stats are up. Click on my reports for regional stats. You'll see 1057 psych position offered through the match, with 57 unfilled.

    I'm a late-grad... I wonder how this 57 compares to the number for last year. I'm thinking about scrambling in psychiatry (my chosen field).

    Almost identical. 54 spots went unfilled last year, out of a total of 1037 offered. Got the stats from http://www.medfriends.org/match_statistics/2006 NRMP statistics.pdf

    Good luck, sga430!

    ...didn't he say in the other big thread that he was going to be out of the country this week? I guess I wouldn't expect a response from him anytime soon.

    I really hope he matched. I would be astonished if he didn't.

    If he didn't, I've lost my faith in probability.

    Rumor has it that he withdrew from the match as he decertified his ROL @ 8:59pm. Since he only went on 48 interviews, he wasn't really sure if he was making the right decision. Kudos to him! I wish more people really took the time to think over what they're actually getting into - it's a big decision, after all. I hear he's taking a year off to find himself. His girlfriend that he met in 6th grade was pestering him to get married, but he needed some more time to think it over. I think the combination of all of these interviews and his 15 year relationship really got the best of him. :p

    Godspeed, sga430!
