Members don't see this ad.
I'm curious as to which is more competitive/desirable between Advanced vs. Categorical. Is anyone out there just ranking one type (like only ranking categorical programs)?

And which do u think would be more competitive / preferred? Obviously it's program-dependent, but if anyone has general opinions, that would help. This whole process needs to end soon! Thanks.:cool:

I have a question to add to that. If you have a program that you want as number 1... and they have many more advanced positions than categorical, does it hurt your chances to rank the categorical first (assuming many other individuals put advanced as their first choice?). The bottom line is you want to match at that program regardless of prelim. Thanks.

ranking something above something else can't hurt your chances, period. if you rank x above y, the only thing that will "hurt" your chance of getting y is to get x. rank them exactly in your order of preference, there is no point in doing it any other way.
