i'm looking for advice on how to rank pedo programs. Match of course says to rank the programs based on your preferences, but that may not be the smartest choice, i.e. I don't want to end up unmatched. I went on a couple of interviews and got good vibes from several programs, but it seems that interviewers are trained to be friendly becasue they want applicants to rank their program highly. I went to one program that interviews 65-70 people for 5 spots. It is difficult to beat out 15 other people and, although I am interested in the program, I am considering ranking them beneath other programs because the odds are low that i will get in. It seems that the higher you rank a program the lower your chances are to match at that program. Should I use up a top rank ( 3rd choice) for a program that i am not confident will rank me? Would that significantly lower my chances to get into a next programs that i rank 4 and 5? thanks.
