Just thought I'd get a jump on starting this thread.
IV Doc said: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.
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.NYC_anest_2004 said:Matched. Only 53 total unfilled spots this year! Wow!
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.IV Doc said:Where did you get this number from.
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.sikboy said: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?
Did you rank only Cali programs? Matching any program there is rough, rough, rough.Lefty said: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.
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.skywalker09 said:Does anyone know what programs if any, in nyc went unfilled this time around?
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 spotsskywalker09 said:Does anyone know what programs if any, in nyc went unfilled this time around?
Probably. It sounds like it means 24 categorical (i.e., CA0-CA3) spots and 29 advanced (CA1-CA3) spots.skywalker09 said: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

txdoc2b said: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!
