Another post from a trolling med student... I realized as I apply for residency that you only get limited information from the match list that med schools give you when you apply. Specifically, people only match at the places that they get interviewed. Case scenario: -I apply to residency programs A through M -Only programs D, G, K and L offer me an interview -I rank the programs that interviewed me: G, D, L, K -I match at program D. Now my med school can say that I matched at one of my top three programs. Maybe program D is even some high-falutin' fancy-schmancy place with a big name, but what if my real first choice had been program B? So take those match lists with a grain of salt, y'all. And good luck.
