got the email too but don't know if I got a EM or the 1 IM program I used as backup. Oh well like my wife said at least I know I will have a job.

Way to go. 2 days 23 hours and 54 min to go.

Congrats to all of you that matched! I hope you matched at your top choice!

Just don't forget SDN when you become big bad EM residents... stop by and keep contributing!

does anyone know whether the deans know the state/city of our match? not that it would change anything at this point, but it would allow me to guess whether I'm 4-yr bound or 3.

Yeah - Congratulations! It's nice to know that some of you will be making my life much easier in the next year ;) Seriously - Go out tonight, tomorrow, and the day after and get crazy. Don't forget how you feel today, because regardless of where you match, the important thing is that you did!

I am in the same boat. I ranked a prelim as a back up. If you matched at the prelim, it would say "congratulations! You ranked into a ONE year program!" instead of "congratulations you matched". I called NRMP to find out about this. You can call them to verify this info.

Keeping my fingers crossed I'll see your name on our list tomm! :D

Roja,

Does this mean that programs find out who matched at their residency a day before the applicants do?

Thanks
