This is the second time in time in the last three matches this has happened. Also happened in 2007.
I've heard it wasn't intentional. I believe what they did was that based on the previous year's match, if they for example had to go down to #100 on their rank list to fill a class of 60, then they called the first 100 people on their list. The problem then became that the following year they only had to go down to say #80 to fill their class - which means #80-100 would have gotten a call and yet not match.
What they need to do is ONLY call people who are ranked 1-60 (assuming 60 is the class size).
Do people here seriously believe programs like MGH only have to go down to 100 on their match list? Don't forget, the majority of people who interview at the big 4 have interviews at 3 or more of the big 4. I doubt MGH has ever managed to fill with less than 130-150 down their list. But I bet they have called the top 200. Just the way things go.
