    For those who matched, I was just curious where the program you ended up at fell in your rank list. TIA for the replies.

    umm... good luck with getting responses to this from anyone not at their first choice... I think there's a reason why this information is confidential. ;)

    I think he means people will be embarassed/touchy if they didnt get top picks. I freely admit to being a less-than-ideal candidate, but others may be more sensitive.

    how many interviews per match usually?
     
  6. I've been told that the "magic number" is 10 - meaning, if you go on 10 interviews, you should match. Not sure if this is mathematically proven, but just a guideline I guess.

    Good luck!
