I have spent too much time sitting in the shadows of SDN as an observer throughout the entire ERAS process..... too lazy to find out what my password was from almost 4 years ago before I entered med school.... but today is a different day.....I had to throw my 2 cents in because I matched to a program I actually want to go to (I ranked only the 5 I liked best) ... and the NRMP definitely gave me some lovin today... :) I can't wait until Thursday !!

:luck: Best of Luck to everyone!!! :luck:

It's nice to see a double entendre not go to waste. As my father said when I told him the news: "Way to go, son! Now all you have to look forward to is work, retirement and death."

matched. thank you jebus!

(random sidenote: i met a dude with "thank you jebus" and homer's hands praying with rosary tattoo'd on his chest. dang. i just got back from a drunken pilgrimage of 3000ish miles. it was the perfect distraction from obsessing about the future. and i saw a shoplifting she-male get tackled in vegas. it was ugly, but novel.)

the numbers look really good here. congratulations to all of you. hopefully we will match at our top choices in just a few days.

p.s. don't you think this whole process is really disturbing? nrmp plays this little game with us. "hey let's make these ****ers wait 3 weeks. then let's just shoot them an email just to whet their appetite and to make them sweat. then let's make them stew about it for 3 days."

I haven't been able to celebrate all day because the two friends I checked my email with this morning both didn't match. So I've been forced to supress my own personal emotions all day en lieu of a more somber tone.

Hell yeah, I matched! But this was not terribly exciting for me due to the number and quality of programs I ranked. Thursday will be the big day for me.

That wry sense of humour was not entirely the product of environment, I see.

In the general anti-climatic atmosphere of the day, my one-liner came sandwiched between a "Missing rotation evaluation form" email message and the next trauma progress note.

I am getting greedy. I will not settle for anything less than #1 now. My schweet schweet number one... come to me!

Happy to join the matched club! I will enjoy the next 2 and a half days pretending I matched at my #1 choice. For now, the dream is still alive. Thursday it may all be shot to hell. :) Good luck, friends!

Sorry it's not reeally on topic, but a very funny Simpsons sequence:

Homer: Hi uhm.. let me have one of those porno magazines, large box of condoms, a bottle of Old Harper, couple of those panty shields and some illegal fireworks and one of those disposable enema's.. uhm.. no make it two!

Clerk who looks like Apu: My apologies, sir, but the sale of fireworks is prohibited in this state and is punishable by a f... follow me.


Marge: Gee Homer, I dont know what you've got planned for tonight but count me out!

p.s. I found out today that the programs find out who matched with them tomorrow - but they have to keep it a secret under penalty of death, apparently. They won't even tell us poh residents!

Heard this also...I think that your medical school will also have access to this information tomorrow. Just tell us already...

I actually got an email from a program where I interviewed that didn't fill. They basically told me that they don't know which residents they got until tomorrow, but if I didn't match to please contact them for one of the spots they didn't fill.

That's really interesting. But of course you matched :) ... and if all goes the way you envision, you got either #1 or #2. Rock on!
