nrmp says the more, the better... but what if you only have 4 that you really want to go to? what's the average number of places that people rank? i hear that people applying for FM get one of their top 3 choices usually, but that isn't stopping me from freaking out. the program directors and residents at the programs i interview at seem to like me, i get the obligatory note cards, emails, and phone calls... but don't they schmooze everyone?

i'll be ranking 4, 5 if i have a nervous breakdown between now and feb 21.

how many will you rank?

After cancelling a few interviews, I ended up interviewing at 10 and will rank all of them. I am going through couple's match with my husband who is applying in general surgery.

Interviews: 6

AOA Match: Ranking 1

NRMP Match: Ranking 4

This was a rough call, because my #2 and #3 can only be reached through the NRMP match, but my #4 is perfectly acceptable and I will be happy there. So if I don't get my #1, it will be weird with my #4 because they will know I didn't rank them, so someone in the NRMP match must be higher - and that I'd rather take my chances with that place than just match with them. I decided I only have one chance at this, so I'll just go for the gold. I ranked my #1 as such in both matches.

Hopefully, it all works out on Feb 12th and it doesn't get weird.

I'm ranking only 4. I interviewed at like 7-8 but I cry everytime I think that I may have to go there. It may be dumb to only rank 4, but at least I can say I would be happy at all 4!
