    Good luck everyone!! I remember reading this a few years ago.

    Michael Scarn said:

    Match Eve poem by Mrs. Scarn

    tWas the night before match day and all through the house
    Not an applicant was sleeping, not even their spouse.
    All the rank lists were numbered, submitted with care,
    in the hopes that school "number one" soon would be theirs.

    Hopefuls everywhere nestled snug in their beds,
    while visions of third molars danced in their heads.
    And me in my scrubs, i turned off the light,
    and settled myself in for the world's longest night.

    When from my iPhone there came such a clatter,
    i sprang from the bed to see what was the matter.
    Away to the charger I ran in a dash; the screen came alive in a brilliant white flash.

    The box on the screen blinked to notify me
    It had just received an email that I needed to see.
    And what to my wondering eyes should appear
    but a subject line saying omfs match finally here!

    In a rush of adrenaline, my patience was gone.
    I'm done with this waiting, let the match bring it on!
    As true as sdn my confidence came, and I whistled, and shouted, and called them by name!

    Now parkland! Now, Vanderbilt! Now, San Antonio or Unc!
    On, Baylor! On, Oregon! On, Florida or Kentucky!
    To my life's next six years! Now don't make me wait!
    Now bring it on! Tell me! Show me my fate!

    As if in slow motion, the email opened up.
    My eyes scanned the page, my fingers crossed for luck.
    In confusion I searched, come on, what's the catch?
    And then, in awful clarity, the words, "you did not match".

    My body went limp, eyes rolled back in my head.
    My life flashed before my eyes. I fell back on the bed.
    My throat was closing in! My lungs found no air!
    My hands clawed my throat, and ripped out my hair!

    This just couldn't be right! Was my mind playing tricks?
    Could I really go on? Add another year to six?!
    What had I done wrong? What qualities did I lack?
    I must run far away and never come back!

    "No, no!" moaned my voice in an unearthly tone.
    I was ruined, defeated... The match had won!
    I writhed in my misery, sweat soaking my scrubs.
    I pled for some assistance, some help from above!

    I opened my eyes to a glimmer of light, the clock on my nightstand showing midnight.
    I bolted up straight, and off the bed I fell.
    Somehow I had slept-and dreamed myself into hell!

    I gasped for a breath, I reached for my phone.
    No new messages! The email from hades was gone!
    I laugh in hysterics, I feel I could dance! My fate yet undecided! I have another chance!

    The night is still young. Several hours remain,
    enough for at least 10 more nightmares of the same.
    My pulse starts to slow, my head is finally clear.
    There's still 6 dreaded hours until match day is here!

    Is this useful information to people? Honest question! I wouldn't mind posting if people think it's useful, but I wonder if some people would think it is rubbing salt to the wounds for those who didn't match.

    The University of Nebraska Medical Center Division of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery is offering a single non-categorical internship for the 2019-2020 academic year. The responsibilities of the intern will include primary trauma and dentoalveolar call, rotation on the OMFS Head and Neck Oncologic Service, operating room participation, performing local procedures in the clinic at UNMC and the Omaha VA, and floor responsibilities. The intern will rotate alongside the categorical residents and will participate in all clinical rotations that the categorical residents participate in. This includes performing sedations at Creighton University School of Dentistry and supervising dental students there at times. Applicants who are strongly interested in a career in OMFS and who are motivated towards developing into well rounded surgeons are encouraged to apply. The position is from July 1, 2019 to June 30, 2020. This position is fully funded at the PGY 1 position (currently at $58,109) with benefits, book stipend, and four weeks of vacation.

    One more thing: to those looking to get into OS and will start scanning through these in the future looking for a ray of hope... keep your head up! Take everything with a grain of salt and be respectful. Listen to the advice of others but don’t let anyone kill a dream. There’s always hope. If you really want this it will happen so be careful haha. All the best to everyone and Congrats to all who matched!

    Not to derail the thread, but why would these programs go unfilled, is this a common thing?

    Most likely they just didn’t rank enough people. Or everyone they ranked ranked them low and got accepted somewhere else. It happens every now and then and seems to affect the less popular school and the big names (who probably think they don’t need to rank more then 5-6 per spot).

    So research doesn't really matter when applying for OMFS?

    There are programs that value it and programs that don’t

    It depends. It can potentially help your application if it is OMFS related. Likely not going to be a game changer, unless is was major research that you presented at AAOMS and won awards for, etc. The way I see it, only do research if you like research. I'm personally not a big fan, so I didn't do it during dental school. Don't force yourself and reluctantly do random dentinal tubule research during dental school becasue you think it'll help your OMFS application. It won't; It may hurt it. OMFS applications aren't like ortho or peds where extracurriculars and volunteering play a major role. Program directors have different criteria they each look for, but for the most part, the CBSE currently remains the most important thing on your application.
