When I'm at an interview and they give me a sheet with last year's matchlist, I just glaze over and stare. I have no idea about the different strengths of matchlists. How do you tell? Do you look for the prestige of the hospitals or the number of people going into particular specialties? Is the strength of the residency correlated with strength of medical school? Is it correlated with strength of the US News hospital rankings? Am I way off?
