So now that everyone's rank list is done, or should be done really damn soon, lets hear where everyone is wanting to go. Any prematches (other than ketafol that lucky SOB;) ) I'm still working on mine but will post later on.

When are rank lists due? I thought you had another week to finish them up.

Can someone answer this for me? I'm about to leave for Europe, and I won't have internet access for a few days....I was going to let London help me unwind before ranking.

Plane leaves 9 pm PST.

Thanks!

Yeah, it was a joke.

It's been dead around here!

Did the CRNA's win and everyone go to radiology?

Perish the thought!

Well, let's liven it up shall we. This was a thread about final rank lists. I suspect most people are waiting for the deadline to post due to paranoia, but I'll go ahead and post. I'm a Louisiana guy, and a Tulane boy at heart, so...

1. Tulane
2. Ochsner
3. Kentucky
4. Arkansas
5. LSU-Shreveport

Didn't get many interviews, but I hope/believe that I've done enough to get me what I want, and that's a spot in the city of New Orleans. C'MON TULANE!!!

Alright I'm in....maybe posting this will keep me from flip flopping again. All ranks after #1 are subject to change at any time before the deadline

1. Vanderbilt - C
2. Mayo-Scottsdale - A
3. UNC - A
4. Stanford - A
5. KU-Wichita - C
6. Arizona - A

So the wife and I had a long talk and it turns out she was scared that if we left town we'd delay kids again. I said no, let's churn em out and then she was like, "I'm totally ready to leave."

UNC fell simply b/c it has tougher optometry licensing requirements. Stanford, you rock, but you are so expensive. Vandy, I wish you had more vacation intern year, but I love ya...hopefully I'll be seeing more of you.

Good luck everyone!

Just trying to decide between UCLA, NW, and U. of Chicago. Thinking about putting UCLA over NW and U. of C because of weather..would you guys consider these programs as being on the same tier?

UCLA=NW>U of C. from what I hear. However, my personal list would be NW>U of C >>>>>>>>>UCLA because you couldn't pay me to live in LA.

I hear UCLA >> NW > U of C. However my personal list would be UCLA >>>>> NW >> U of C. Mostly based on location. U of C in ghetto. UCLA in westwood!!! And Chicago is 0.1 F 5 months/yr.

Hey

Just checking. Once we have the green certified ROL then that's it right? Just want to make sure. Such a long process and wouldn't want to miss it by not checking the final box.

Thanks, good luck everybody.

Green means you are good to go! All the best everyone. I'm glad this process is finally over and no longer in our hands.

It was pretty nervewracking today because I got two warning emails from the NRMP that I had not yet submitted a ranklist. It is just so final, but I am very happy with where I will be going. Good luck yall.

Yeah, this has been very nerve wracking. I received a pre-match offer (I'm a DO) from Hopkins, but my wife told me there was no way in hell she'd live in Baltimore. It would have been nice to have this done 1 1/2 mos ago.

Speaking of being a DO, I had a funny experience at Stanford. I'm not sure if they've ever had a DO resident in their program but I got lucky and was granted an interview. I interviewed with an older gentleman from S. Africa (who was very cool).

He asked me point blank, "Why didn't you go to medical school?"

I tried to explain that I did and what my degree meant, that I had to have gone to med school to be applying to his program. I finally just gave up and asked him about Nelson Mandela or something like that.

Still makes me laugh to this day. Get those rank lists up, son!

My wife said my CV picture was very "handsome."

:laugh:

A friend going EM did an away in Chicago. He said the residents at this particular program get together prior to ROL submission to review each candidate. A .ppt presentation is made for each candidate, including their pic on the projector. "Animal House" came to mind.

11- Stanford
12- Beth Israel Deaconess
13- UMDNJ-Cooper Hospital, Camden

--I hope I made the wisest choices, I practically stroked over making this list...I chose Penn #1 and #2 because I felt Gaiser and Fleisher were the strongest residency advocates and would do anything for their residents; also the Hopkins PD is stepping down, and at MGH the chair is stepping down which dropped them down on my list...anyone want to give me feedback??? I felt this was a logical choice, but what do I really know about this~? I'd like to hear your opinion :D ... thank you all, and best of luck!:luck:

Is Harbor really that bad? What did you prefer about USC and UCI over Loma Linda? Thanks!

Harbor was the only place I actively disliked. I just didn't vibe with the place, and the schedule is just too weird for me. Some may like it better though, especially those really interested in moonlighting (I'm not).

I actually really liked Loma Linda. Great program, friendly people, and close to Big Bear where I used to live and play. I would have ranked it higher but my fiancee decided she wouldn't really want to live out in Redlands/Loma Linda, and so I gotta respect that. I'd be more than happy to end up there though, I have nothing but great things to say about it.

USC>UCI just for location. I liked them both a lot. USC seems like an up-and-coming program, and UCI seems to have rebounded from its administrative issues, at least in my relatively uninformed opinion. Happy people at all of them (the ones I ran across anyway).

Thanks Hawaiian Bruin for the reply. I have to agree with you about everything you said. I would have definitely ranked LL #1 if it weren't for location. But, I did put them very high and would love to go there nonetheless. Best of luck, however it seems to me that you won't need it. Myself, however...

Would have ranked CCF much higher (1 or 2) but my wife hates ohio. i'd be happy anywhere on this list but hopefully i get houston so my wife can be with her family and raise our son (due March 29th) stress free.

Do I have alot of competition out there for UTH? Good luck everyone.
