    I think I screwed up. I know I had thought about my list over and over and over BUT I realize I may have made a mistake. I ranked a program #1 cause I've always wanted to go there but after my interview I never gotten any hints as to how I'll be ranked. My #2 choice on the other hand gave me enough hints as to how they'll rank me and they most likely will. So I reviewed and researched info on my #2 choice and eventually I became so familiar with it than my #1 choice. Now I'm thinking if I my top choice does rank me and end up with them, I feel that I've lost something.

    I know I can't change my ROL anymore, but are the programs able to so or do we have the same deadline. And isn't it stupid to ask a program not to rank you? This is all F'd up! I wanna change my ROL!! :mad:

    The programs have the same deadline as the candidates, Thursday Feb 21. If you're absolutely serious and think you've made a major major mistake on your rank list, I'd talk to the Dean's office at your school or whatever office handled all your ERAS stuff. I'm not entirely positive so don't quote me or say it's true but I've heard that it may be possible to change your ROL after the deadline but you'll need your Dean's help in the matter.

    <img border="0" title="" alt="[Eek!]" src="eek.gif" /> Oh, wow!!! I think we are all second-guessing our selections, I know I am. What I have been trying to do is , when doubts start making my brain feel like Arizona dust, I just focus on the reasons I chose one program over the other. At one point is sounds like your #1 was your first love, you made that decision for a reason, go back and think about why you did that and focus on the positive reasons, make a list if you have to, and I think you'll be surprised how your thinking changes. However, I could be completely out of my mind at this point. Just try to relax and give this process some time. :) :) :)

    Thanks for the reply. What an awkward situation. I consulted our DME and looks like I'm stuck with my ROL. I wish the match was sooner so I don't have to go through days when I'm praying I get my 1st choice and days that I wish I don't match with them. Grrr...I need some sedative!

    Holy crap I matched. Now one more day until I know whether I'm gonna be crying or rejoicing. I'm still hoping I get my 2nd choice. This just kills me.

    Where do I find out which programs filled? I know I won't be scrambling but hot damn I can't wait another hour!!!

    :confused:
