    It seems like people are always talking about how a particular school matches pretty much everyone into this amazing residency positions. Well, I'd like to know what schools have really POOR match-lists?

    I dont think that the word "poor" match list is applicable to most US med schools.There are however definite differences.Graduates of the few highly prestigious schools such as Columbia,Cornell,Penn etc tend to match at very top name instituitions..the great majority of the class does with a high percentage in competitive specialties.Grads of state schools in the south and midwest tend to go to local hospitals in primary care.This is not "poor" matching it is because these individuals want to stay local and were chosen in the first place for admission because of a perceived interest in practicing primary care in the state.As for the rest of the med schools in America the matching is quite similar in quality.Variables relating to the individual student are more important than the name of the school by far!
