27 minutes and counting. I am not really worried about matching into anesthesia but maybe a little when it comes to matching for the prelim medicine year. After interviewing with all rads and derm people you have to wonder if you will match. Well only time will tell.

IT CAME EARLY!!

Congratulations! You have matched.

Check the Match Site at https://services.nrmp.org/r3/ on Thursday March 17, 2005
at 1:00 PM EST to find out where you matched. Because you are matched, you do no
have access to any information about unfilled programs.
WOO-HOO!

:D

If it says you matched then you matched both, if it says you matched for an advanced position then that is all you matched for. On a side note it is frustrating to read that people matched when my schools email is down. So finally a minute ago it started working and I am happy to say I will not be scrambling for a prelim surg spot.

Well, I guess I am the first one on here to say I didn't match. I ranked 10 programs and did not match. I had good LORs, good grades, and USMLE 231. I am in shock. I didn't know if I'd match for a prelim spot, but I was pretty sure I'd match anesthesia. I got several thumbs up from programs. Oh well, I guess I gotta try and grab one of the remaining 53 spots tomorrow.

Congrats to all who matched.

What if you ranked prelim spots at the end of your primary list? How do you know if you just matched ino one of these or into an anesthesia spot?

Matched. Only 53 total unfilled spots this year! Wow!
If you matched, how did you find the "total unfilled" number? I couldn't find it on the NRMP site anywhere, which I guess is a good sign, since I matched.

Where did you get this number from.
Log into the NRMP site. Click on "my reports" and then "regional match statistics by program". Compared to last year, a lot more unfilled radiology spots. Even a handful more derm spots unfilled. We had 53 open spots this year, compared to 89 last year.

I matched!
"Congratulations, you have matched to an advanced position but not a first year position!"

But I have already graduated from DO school last year and I am in the middle of my osteopathic internship now - so it looks like next year I am moonlighting for the year.

For those of you who are wondering if you matched for the residency with or without the internshiop - the post of my match status should show you what they write to those who did not match into a prelim year.

good luck to all

My dean's office said that they will find out if you only match for Pre-lim. If that happens, they call you to let you know so that you can ready to scramble.

I would assume that most schools do this.

Did you rank only Cali programs? Matching any program there is rough, rough, rough.

Good luck, dude. Scramble like the wind.

Since I applied late (November), I only got two interviews.

Since I could only rank two places, I expected to be scrambling.

Against all odds and by the grace of God, I MATCHED!!! OMG!!!! :laugh:

Won't find out that info till tomorrow. The NE (which obviously includes NYC) had a total of 25 unfilled spots. Whether or not any of the NE spots are in NYC...well, you need to wait until tomorrow to find that out.

Don't know they only give out stats by region, but North east region has 9 unfilled PGY-1 spots and 16 unfilled PGY-2 spots

ok, so on the nrmp site, it says there were 24 PGY1 positions unfilled, and 29 PGY2 positions. i know this sounds ******ed, but by PGY1, are they talking about those anesthesiology programs that are 4 year programs? i'm confused

Probably. It sounds like it means 24 categorical (i.e., CA0-CA3) spots and 29 advanced (CA1-CA3) spots.

But, this is just my guess.

So I matched at a Boston hospital for gas but not for a prelim spot. Anyone know any good prelim programs in the Boston area or where I can get info about them. I have to be in the Boston area because I'm in a couples match. Congrats to all those who match and good luck to all those who will be scrambling with me tomorrow!

I'm pretty sure the answer to this is that you don't know. If a prelim spot was on your primary list, it's treated just like all your anesthesia programs you ranked, so I'm pretty sure you will just have to wait until Thursday to see which one. If anyone knows that I am wrong, please correct me, but that's what I think.

Good luck Thursday!

Actually no... here is a thread that explains it somewhat and I also confirmed this a few minutes ago with the NRMP...
I also had the same concerns...

Good luck everyone and congratulations to those who matched...

Good luck for anyone scrambling. A second look not done and it could have been the same story for me. Sorry and good luck. I hear that bringing food helps, just in case scrambling goes on for a while. :luck:
