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?
Based on the number of responses he/she produced during that last residency cycle, he/she is probably taking a nap.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.
If the track you applied for had one position in the scramble, and you ranked them #1, then you are correct that they did not rank you at all. Be sure that the scrambled position was for the track you were applying -- if they scrambled a primary care position and you applied for categorical, then perhaps it just didn;t work out.Hi aProgDirector:
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.
