    I got the email from nrmp at Mon, 18 Mar 2002 11:50:00 -0500 (EST)

    Thats 10minutes before they release the results on the web site.

    Now the wait.

    All the best!!

    Congrats, Ligament and Tedsadoc2002! This is going to be a fine day for many. Good luck to you both and to all others who match today. And to those who don't, it's not over yet by a long shot. Just remember that.

    Thanks guys for posting. I checked my email after seeing this and got the message that I matched 8 minutes earlier (that would have been a long 8 minutes). I'm so relieved that I will be doing radiology next year. Now I really want to know where!

    Oh god, I just about crapped myself here, just found out I matched so looks like we have a few budding radiologists here. Thank god. I'm actually less nervous about Thursday than I was about today.

    I am so proud of our SDN'ers!

    I'm going into Medicine, so I wasn't too worried about today, but it was still very nice to get that email.

    All my best for Thurs!

    You get to learn both matches at the initial "Congratulations you have matched!" notice, Whisker? If I understood you correctly, that's great! Congratulations! <img border="0" alt="[Clappy]" title="" src="graemlins/clappy.gif" />

    Yeah, if you get the "Congratulations! You have been matched" message that means you matched to both a PGY-1 prelim, trans year AND the Advanced PGY-2 years. It would give you a message if you only matched into either a PGY-1 AND NOT PGY-2 it would say "you matched to a one year position" if you matched into a PGY-2 AND NOT PGY-1 year it would say "you matched to a advanced or PGY2 position".

    Congatulations guys!

    These next few weeks will be great - the knowledge that you have a place (even if its not your top choice hopefully you only ranked places you would be happy at) and you don't have to sludge through the drudgery of residency yet. Enjoy 'em! :D

    glad to report that I matched also... what a relief.

    but I was curious, did anyone else only find out because of the congratulations message on their NRMP intro page? I never received an e-mail, but when I logged onto NRMP, I got the good news.

    just wondering whether anyone also didn't receive an e-mail from NRMP.

    thanks - and congratulations everyone!

Some of my classmates and I had Yahoo addresses and did not receive an e-mail. Maybe Yahoo thought the hundreds of e-mails from NRMP were a spam attack of some kind. In any case, I found out that I matched (in dermatology, yay!) from the NRMP site.

    PathDoc--
    What you described happened to a couple of my classmates. Our dean's office didn't page them, so they knew they'd matched, but still, it's nice to see it in black and white.

    I might as well add my name to the growing list... I matched in OB/GYN! And not only that but my class has a 100% match rate so no one at my school had to scramble. Now if we can all be this happy on Thursday...

    AHH YES...

    I matched...who knows where...and why these people matched me...but they have no idea what they're in for. You want to talk about blind...the three places for prelim that I interviewed at....I DIDN'T DO ANY OF THE INTERVIEWS IN PERSON...all over the phone. THEY ARE GOING TO BE THE MOST MALIGNANT PROGRAMS ON THE PLANET...CAN YOU HAVE Q1 CALL...cause I'm pretty sure I'll have a time share in the hospital..

    Congratulations to all...

    best of luck wherever you land....
