I was reading through some older posts about ranking programs, including an awesome thread from this spring where people actually wrote out their lists. I wondered what people's experiences with their lists, and whether they got their first choice or how far down their lists they went when they matched where they are today. I have had alot of interviews, and there is one more in January which I feel would be a good fit for me. I have some top favorites, including my absolute favorite. I had so many interviews that it began to freak me out and I had to start cancelling some. Still, this whole process is hard and I am anxious about whether any programs will actually rank me, etc. I know, it's just applicant flutters but still - I am nervous! Thoughts, experiences from those who are now in residency? How many programs should you rank? I didn't like all the programs I went to, and right now only feel really comfortable ranking about 6 programs.
