It has been quite some time I don't see his posts in this forum. The last post was April 7. Is he still with this forum? Or having vacation somewhere at the beach?
He was an invaluable source of information during this past residency interview season.
I'm sure he'll re-emerge as we approach residency interview season again and more threads are created on this topic.
I matched into my #2 choice, but just found out that my #1 choice had one spot in scramble, which means they did not rank me at all. However, I got really "GREAT" feedback during and after the interview. The PD at this place said:" he promise to rank me highly although no guarantee" Yes, he used the word "Promise" in the sentence. And he even went an extra mile to help me out by recommending his friend who is a PD in another hosiptal to consider my application as well. I understand the match "game", and know that "rank highly" does not guarantee a match, but not ranking me at all really shocked me.
Do PDs often lie so much or it is likely a error somewhere. Anyway, I wish that I could know what happened.
