    Be careful. I'm almost certain there was a thread like this in the past -- student had some problem, preceptor gave them a week off, then school got angry and initiated a professionalism investigation, since your school needs to approve any time off.

    Probably the same way I found out. Program interviewed 70 people for 6 spots and had half those spots still remaining in SOAP. And that program was my number one... ugh

    No man, I got no calls at all today. You should get in touch with that resident who interviewed and ask what is going on.

    Thank you for your concern, but my school was working on getting me a few days off regardless

    I had a buddy who this happened to. She’s about to graduate from that program now, they took her in the SOAP. She said the interview was super awkward.

    That’s because you’re nothing to the school but a widget with an associated accounts receivable number. **** med schools.

    Im a DO student. I applied only ACGME for IM and I had 11 interviews and ranked 11, but did not get matched :(
    I applied to 45 FM progs at around 2pm yesterday...but no calls yet.
    I did Step 1/2 + comlex 1/2; got 240/251 and 604/648. But I dun have much experience. I am also canadian n need a J1 and mostly applied to progs that sponsor J1 for SOAP, was not entirely sure on the rest. What are my chances that I will match by end of SOAP?

    Some people also got message on ERAS.
    Everyone should keep checking their Emails, ERAS & NRMP every few minutes.

    Ugh. The sad thing is I thought they liked me, they told me all these things and then to not get ranked. And like a stupid idiot I would still take them back after what they did to me.

    U.S. med student here.
    Partially matched: got a prelim in NYC, but did not match into PM&R. This is my 2nd attempt.
    Step 1: 197
    Step 2: 227

    Because I matched into a prelim program, I can only SOAP into advanced spots, of which there are only 14 open spots in total, in Rads, Rad/Onc, Neuro, and Anesthesia.
    1 call so far from a Neuro program.

    Yes, and it's been reported here on SDN before, but unlikely. Most likely for prelim GS.

    if they went unfilled, then obviously they didn't rank him/her.

    You can't give up until the third round is over! And even then, there will be leftover programs to apply to, including programs that did not participate in SOAP!

    Maybe. I would have thought they’d call by now. The whole “devil you know” better than unknown. We will see.

    By the way for anyone curious about this, whether for IM (or gen surg), it doesn't count towards an additional SOAP app to select multiple options under one program tab, ie selecting both a prelim and categorical under one surgical program only counts as "one" program).
