    Does anyone know how easy it will be to scramble into a PGY 1 spots. Any input will be appreciated.
    Thanks

    Prelim med and transitional programs usually are quite competitve. But I wouldn't stress too much if you can't snatch up one of those in the scramble. There are always plenty of prelim surgery spots that remain. Most of those surgery openings on the regional match outcomes list are prelim rather than categorical. Congrats on matching by the way!

    Did you get a partial response from NRMP tdk? (ie congrats you matched...but not a prelim/TY) Or did you just not apply to one?

    I just got the 'Congrats you matched' message and I'm dying to know if that means I matched a PGY2 or a categorical program...

    Does the site say "partially matched" if you matched to an advanced program but not a prelim? My message just said that I matched. I assume this means that I matched to a categorical program.

    "Fully matched applicants WILL NOT receive ANY information on unfilled programs/
    positions by email or be able to access it on the NRMP web site."

    If your email said "Congratulations, you have matched," that means you fully matched into a prelim AND categorical. You have absolutely nothing to worry about!!
    I received the above email....i'm now working on my 3rd beer!! :D

    If you get a message that says "Congratulations you matched", that could mean that either you matched in a Categorical (4-year) program or that you matched into both a prelim and a Advanced (3 year program). I too was wondering about that so I called NRMP to find out. Good luck everyone on Thursday and to all those needing a prelim spot.

    Thanks Drjdiz for the NRMPs sadistic response...

    Honestly, why doesn't NRMP just release everything on one day? Would releasing WHERE we matched on the same day those who didn't match get notified really change matters for scramblers?

    Yes it would change it for the scramblers because everyone would know they didn't match.

    Here's a monkeywrench- I got a Congrats you matched message, even a kick back and relax, no need to scramble email. The thing is I ONLY applied to Advanced spots and didn't rank or interview at any prelim/transitional positions.

    Gonna call NRMP tomorrow to try to sort things out, meanwhile is anyone else in similar straits?

    My logic tells me that if you did not rank a prelim spot, then the computer does not see it as an unmatch. see what i'm getting at?
    you got your match and nothing was left unresolved.

    Jimbojango,
    I am sorry if I have given you wrong information, but I addressed that scenario with the NRMP representative directly, one where you ranked a 3 year spot and did not rank a prelim program in your supplemental list.

    He said that in that case you will get an email that says that you did not match in a preliminary program or something like that, but you will definitely be aware that you did not match in one.

    I had the same situation for one of my programs and that is how I found out for sure that I am not going there.

    Good luck JJ

    congratulations to those who matched, and good luck to those in the scramble.

    i am an img who signed out of the match for prelim med and matched through the nrmp for an advanced position. my match message stated:

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

    so, to confirm dr. djizum's info, a message of "you have matched" means you matched categorical or prelim + advanced.
