I remember reading this, but I can't find it anymore. Do programs find out today the names of those who matched into their program? Thank you.

I just found this out from a NRMP meeting doc:

Wednesday
8:00 a.m. - School match notification letters
8:00 a.m. - School match results
8:00 a.m. - Applicant choices by specialty
2:00 p.m. - Program Roster of Matched Applicants


So, I guess at 2 pm EST, they find out. Also, does anyone know if foreign schools get match results/notifications as well? Thank you.

So, basically, everybody knows where we're going to be next year... except for us. :laugh:

I guess it's good to practice patience...

That is completely unfair. We should be notified the same time - programs, schools, and applicants.

I concur. Talk to my husband about it too, he's absolutely outraged that it takes three weeks for all this to get done and then they choose to drag it out in the end. Does anyone know the rationale for releasing info to programs but not us?

Well, to be fair, the programs could use the extra time because there's a chance they might have to pack up and move across the country.

Oh wait, that's not right.

Seriously though, I don't think there's anything necessarily wrong with the time between ROL certification and match results, if they're using it to make sure that there aren't any mistakes run in the match.

The timing this week, though, is quite bizarre. The Did I Match? on Monday makes sense as it allows unmatched applicants to scramble and still celebrate Match Day with their class, if they find a position. But programs don't find out if they're unfilled until Tuesday.... literally 30 minutes before the scramble starts! :eek:

(And yes, PD's get a "Did my program fill?" email. :laugh:)

I assume its a match violation for programs to call/email the people beforehand even though they know now?

What bugs me is that I'm sure that some med students who are close to administrators are finding out today.

Meh. It changes nothing in the long run. Ten years from now it will have made zero difference whether you were able to find out a day early or not, no matter how high-strung you are.

Yes, and a thousand years from now I'll be dead. Cool story.

It's the system's way of making sure med students are treated like turds until the very end.

It's the system's way of hopefully inducing enlightenment amongst the most neurotic medical students that they are, in fact, super high strung and need to chill the eff out.

Normally I agree with much of what you say. Gonna have to disagree with you vehemently on your response here, however.
