I came here to find out when y'all match and nobody had updated this page! You dirty, lazy scoundrels! And to top it all off you've all been counting wrong! You'll all find out on the 14th, the day that the information is released to the programs. Not the 15th, which it looks like is the date you've been counting to. When the program where you matched finds out, they're going to call you. Everybody gets a call. If you don't - call your med school dean and he/she will know on the 14th. That said:





I hope you all do great! I'll be someone out there's upper level resident a year and a half from now. To that person or those people: God help you and I'm sorry in advance. ;)

I'm just gonna tag this question into this thread as I don't think it warrants its own: after we rank our programs in SF Match, is there anything else we need to do? I just see the list of programs that I applied to, the "Ranked" status along with the number I gave it, and its been confirmed via e-mail. Are there any further steps? Thanks! 9 more days!

Results are released to med schools & programs on 14th. I recall reading somewhere that we receive an email from the program where we match on 14th. And the formal match letter comes through on 15th. Is this correct? Nerve wracking time!

Anyone else feel like this has been kind of a long week? I'm very grateful for the early match, but it still feels like it is taking forever!!!

Your are correct sir/madam.

Edit: you may receive a phone call from the program on the 14th, not an email necessarily.

What time tomorrow do the programs typically find out? And is it typical for programs to contact the applicants to let them know when they find out? Does it mean that if one does not receive a call/email tomorrow that they have not matched?

my understanding is 1/14 at 4 AM Pacific Time SF Match will email everyone and say yes or no on whether you have matched

Is anyone staying up late to wait for this 4AM PST email? The timing works better for the ppl on the left coast...

I gotta say, finding out via email is SO anti-climatic, considering all the years, blood, sweat, tears and $$$$ leading up to this point...

Dear eye colleagues:
I remember the nervousness and anticipation of not knowing when and how match day would go. In an effort to try and help you all have some idea of what to expect, I recently sent a survey to ten current ophthalmology residents and asked them what time they found out where they matched, and if they had any other interesting Match Day experiences they would be willing to share. The survey responses were awesome and I have summarized their Match Day experiences into a blog post that would be annoyingly-long if pasted here to SDN. In case you are interested, here is a link. Good luck!
