    I'm a MS3 so I didn't match this year , but since yesterday have been giving it a lot of thought and I'm just curious how the match actually works. I was reading some of the other threads and got pretty scared. For example what if I rank a program #1, and say they have 8 spots, as long as I'm ranked in one of their 8 spots, will I match with them? Say I'm #9 on their list but one of their 8 doesn't rank them high then will I match with them or do they automatically go to down my list to my #2 spot?? I don't know if this are dumb questions but I'm just starting to get scared.

    Visit www.nrmp.org and click of "residency match." It will have all the information you'll need in addition to a complete explanation of the match algorithm.

    Good luck!
