So I find myself fighting the uphill battle as facing the possibility of not getting any resiency interviews. Has this happened to anyone out there before? What do I do if I don't interview about the rank order list for the Match? Do I still make a list as see what happens? I am so confused. :confused: I put myself in this predicament unwittingly and don't see a way out. Any comments or advice would be appreciated. :eek:

Hi Cabin, sorry about the interview situation - but I think if you read the websites of the places you applied they tend to say that they require a personal interview to begin training. However, you can always scramble or put down your home school. Good luck and I hope things pick up for you! :luck: :luck:

Programs only rank candidates that they've interviewed. I suggest talking to your faculty advisor, and fast. Your only option now may be to scramble. :(

Cabin, I'm sorry to hear about your predicament. What specialty are you applying for?

You can take heart in that many specialties do not fill during match and you will be able to pursue your career of choice through scramble.

Good luck to you!

The others are right...you cannot rank programs that you did not interview at. Therefore, no interviews = no ROL.

Please speak with your faculty advisor or a faculty member in the field you wish to match in and see if he/she can make some phone calls on your behalf. Programs are still interviewing and perhaps you can still score a spot.

If not, there are other options for next year.

So the problem is two fold I guess. I want to do surgery, I go to DO school

1) We do not have a faculty advisor per se after the first two year.
2) There are no "departments" with faculty that you go to for advise on matters like this. I have been trying to get answers but to no avail.

So, I probably will have to scramble which sucks terribly. I haven't been denied by all of my applications yet so there is still hope. I was just trying to get feedback or the possibility.

Thanks everyone for their replies, except that Orange Julius who needs to seriously get a life.

Hi Cabin, did you apply for the DO match too? I know surgery was rough this year - sorry! Good luck, I'll say a prayer for you :)

NO, I did not apply for the DO match. I cannot even visualize me being stuck on the East Coast for 5 more years. I just won't do it. I have been miserable and I would rather do a prelim spot on the West coast and reapply than be trapped. Most DO programs are in PA and NY and OH. These locations I just can't do it for myself and my family. If the mom is unhappy everyone is unhappy.

at this point in the game, i would consider contacting the remaining programs about their intention to interview you or not. sometimes a program will leave you hanging when they never meant to interview you in the first place, which can be quite annoying for applicants.

in terms of scrambling, it may not be the end of the world. i remember there was a mix-up with the match process a few years ago where a couple of spots went unmatched at uva (one of the better places to train in surgery), so a couple of lucky folks took those spots. errors aside, i would try and look up which programs on the west coast traditionally have a few unmatched places you could scramble into. time is apparently of the essence when it comes to the scramble so knowing in advance where you would like to end up would be helpful...

I actually did this when trying to decided where to apply, aside from a few just about all the programs I applied to did not fill totallly last year. So it is my hope that I will be able to get something out west even if I didn't interview initially.

Sure, but he might find that some help from "higher ups" would be of more assistance. Having a faculty member call programs to which the OP applied, but didn't receive interviews, might be able to sway some support in his direction. Usually the applicant doesn't have such influence.

I am rather confused about item number 2 above. When referring to department faculty I meant the Department of Surgery, not an advising department. Whom did you have write your LORs for you? There should be some faculty at your school who could assist you with this problem but as you note, you might have to scramble.

Like I said before there are no departments at my school. We are taught by PhD faculty and the courses are augmented by visiting practicing physicians from around the city. There is no dept of surgery or any other dept like you would find at a large MD school. It just doesn't work that way. I got my LOR's from physicians I rotated with who are not affiliated with my school at all. We have to find our own letter writers when we rotate wherever. Strange??

I find that kind of strange that there are no departments at your school and that you are taught by PhDs. So all you clinical rotations are with visiting physicians?

But I think that the scramble might be your best bet if you don't get any interviews for a categorical position. As a medical student, I remember some residents initially being given a prelim spot and later transitioned into a categorical spot. :oops: Well, good luck to you.

Yes, out of 2 years of rotations I will have rotated with 2 physicians who teach at my school, the rest are not affiliated.

Yes, I am planning on having to scramble. I contacted the last 7 sites I was waiting on and go 3 denials right away so I am not holding my breath on the last 4. Even if I get a prelim spot at this point I will be happy. It's just that I hate to have to move yet again after the prelim year. It would disrupt my kids in school - what a pain for them too.

Ouch...I feel for you man. I don't know what to tell you, except good luck and keep your head up. I can't imagine a school run like this. Even the carribean people I've met had departments that helped them with the match. Care to tell us which school this is (for my curiousity, and so future pre-meds know what they're getting into). Hope it all works out for ya. Happy holidays

I wonder if you might be able to get a few programs to take a look at you if you call to apply for a prelim position. The boat has clearly sailed on categorical positions IMHO, and so if you are looking to scramble anyway, consider that it'd be better if you could at least secure a prelim position through the match. It seems unlikely based on what you are saying, that you would get a categorical position in the scramble anyway (the past few years, there haven't been that many, and what ones those were, were not on the west coast that I can recall.)

So I finally got an answer by emailing NMRP directly about what to do if you didn't interview. They said that you are to submit a certified blank ROL so you are in the system when the scramble comes. Now why couldn't anyone else out there tell me that???? Don't know.

Anyhow, there is the answer for those few in the same boat as me.

Hey Cabinbuilder. I am sorry for your situation :( . I hope you scramble into a very good program. But I had a question. I also am a 3rd year DO student who is interested in going into general surgery :cool: . I will be applying to allopathic programs only :D . If you don't mind me asking, what do think was the reason that you did not get any interviews? Is it because you are a DO applying to allopathic general surgery programs :eek:? Did you apply to high-grade academic programs only :scared: ? Is there any advice you can give me to avoid a similar situation :) ? Sorry, I am not trying to nose into your business :oops: , but I am asking because I want to know how to prepare myself before applying ;) . Thanks in advance and good luck :thumbup: .

I think for me the main fact is that I did not take the USMLE (just take part II) and that I was not able to rotate in a lot of the places I applied to (most of them). Also, I only applied to the West coast because I want to be in that geographic area where DO's are not well known. Honestly I don't know which programs are high grade or low. I just went down the list for west coast and mountain programs and applied to the majority of them. Good luck to you. I seriously didn't think it was going to be this hard to get an interview - I was wrong there. Something will happen eventually because I really don't care about where I end up for residency just as long as I get to do surgery.

Get a surg prelim position anyway you can. Many categoricals open at the PG2 position after folks leave to follow their stars to some other specialty. You can then jump in without another match. If your prelim is at a big place, there's a fair chance of success within your own institution.

Thanks BKN, that's what I am hoping to do - get into surgery somewhere some how whether it be prelim or categorical. At this point beggars can't be chooser. I personally draw the line though at NYC - just wouldn't work for me.

get ready for the scramble. Hopefully you have a good dean's office that will facilitate the scramble for you. If not, make sure that you have a fax machine, (they cost ~$50), and a second phone line for voice calls like a cell phone. And printed copies of your ERAS CAF,CV,etc and supporting stuff. As soon as the unfilled list comes out, start faxing quickly and dialing PD phone numbers. The scramble is first come first serve. Good luck.

I think you set yourself up for this by not taking the USMLE or rotating at the places you applied to. What were you thinking?

I already accepted my fate as my own doing. No need to be mean about it. I tried to get rotations out West but most were full (and I applied almost a year ahead) so its not like I was a slacker and just assumed things would happen. I did do 2 rotations out West but I only have so many electives I can use. I have a family to take care of so it's not like I can just up and leave any time of the year. Plus I can only go by what my school told me. Either way, I don't know why I have to defend myself here, I'm not blaming anyone for my situation. It is what it is.

There are still positions open on the Osteopathic scramble. Have you considered moving to the midwest? There is one position open in Brooklyn if you like a big east coast city. If you want more information on the locations in Michigan PM me.

I already accepted my fate as my own doing. No need to be mean about it. I tried to get rotations out West but most were full (and I applied almost a year ahead) so its not like I was a slacker and just assumed things would happen. I did do 2 rotations out West but I only have so many electives I can use. I have a family to take care of so it's not like I can just up and leave any time of the year. Plus I can only go by what my school told me. Either way, I don't know why I have to defend myself here, I'm not blaming anyone for my situation. It is what it is.
There are still positions open on the Osteopathic scramble. Have you considered moving to the midwest? There is one position open in Brooklyn if you like a big east coast city. If you want more information on the locations in Michigan PM me.

I thank you for you time in putting that list together. I actually have the unmatched list for DO's but am waiting for the MD list as well so I can see what is out there. It is my goal to get off the great lakes for health reasons. My body cannot take the weather anymore and I would never make it through a program staying here. I will not go to NYC. Everything works out for a reason. I have faith. Thanks for your effort.
