Should I tell my top choice?

    Just wondering what you all think about disclosing your preference to your #1 choice. I've been told very diverse things about communicating this information to residency programs. From 'tell your top choice that they are your top choice' to 'programs view this information with a jaundiced eye, they've been burned before'.

    Any input would be greatly appreciated.

    Yes. Tell the program.

    I recently sent the program director a letter stating my intentions of ranking her program first. She let me know that because of my letter, she moved me up several spots on their list, and would now be guaranteed to match. I eventually did match at that program.
