      I had no doubt that Duke would fill... the name alone would attract enough applicants, methinks.

        Eire, are this all the programs that didn't fill - as in accounting for the 22 spots - or are there more?

        And does anybody know how many candidates there were this year for EM - and therefore how many to fight for the unfilled positions? I realize there may be some backing up with other specialties, that might have matched, even though not in the EM.

          I posted a month or so ago about the total # of applicants. Cant' remember the thread and am too lazy to find it ofr you, but I think the title of the thread was sometihng along the lines of "rumor mill # of applications" or something of that ilk.

            Nevermind. I feel bad, since I'm the moderator, of making you look up an old thread. Here you go, I will c/p it.

            Most of you probably saw the ERAS data that was e-mailed recently, but for those of you who did not, there is good news. The number of us graduates applying in ERAS to EM are up by 140 this year, from 1593 to 1733.
            International graduate applications are relatively stable (460 to 455). Using NRMP (not ERAS) data, the number of US seniors who ultimately applied to at least 1 EM program was 1104 in 2001, 1134 in 2002, and 1136 in 2003. Obviously, some folks who apply to EM programs ultimately do not
            follow through on interviews and rankings, so the final numbers in ERAS
            will be less than 1733. However, the increase in 140 applicants is
            good -
            suggests that we will also have a significantly higher number of NRMP
            applicants to EM, enough to cover the position increases of 5 new
            programs
            and quota increases by other programs

                I think it is worth mentioning that of the 5 new programs, only 4 went through the match and the 5th (the one in Louisianna) isn't even interviewing until after match day.

                That opens up the posibilities for some unmatched applicants.

                  Here are the actual numbers. The first number is the quota, the second is the number matched

                    University of Mississippi has several unfilled spots every year it seems. This is very interesting, and from when I interviewed there several years ago, it was explained to me like this.

                    They are a 2-4 program. So, this year match, they are interviewing for those to start in the 2nd year for 2005. This means, that they still have another year to try to fill some of these spots. For instance, if they don't like people, they will not put people on the match list just so they can match. They will hold those spots open for the year, and they can then interview people that have a year or more of experience and want to switch into EM. For instance, they have taken people that have done several years of a surgical residency, they have taken an anesthesiology attending who wanted to then do EM....they have many options to fill those spots over the next year.

                      That's a great point, however the spots from Mississippi were the "R" coded spots which are for physicians coming in as 2nd years in 2004....whether from the military, another residency, etc.

                      "A" coded spots are PGY-2 spots in 2005, and "C" spots are PGY-1 in 2004.

                      I wonder if these 3 spots from Jackson were actually unmatched or if they were tagged for specific people outside of the match?

                        Assuming they ranked you. I'm sure you are an excellent candidate and were ranked highly by everyone you interviewed at, but it is still something to keep in mind.

                          As of this morning at 11:30 this is the current list from NRMP. I think that probably some of the programs aren't updating (especially because one of the other posters said he had gotten a spot at Mississippi and they still have the same number of openings)

                            Since you are the most anal member of the forum, I thought I'd give you something to chew on tonight. Its possible that you matched waaaaaaay down your list AND that this program didn't fill....its called they didn't rank you at all cause they'd rather scramble than have you.

                            (I'm just taunting you of course, but it is POSSIBLE.)

                              I hope so, one must take into account that each year there's a least a new program opening further diluting the pool of applicants.

                              Just glancing at it, it looks like a better match than lasts year in the # of open spots remaining. There was around 40 last year, and around 9-10 in general surgery. (WTF?)

                                Well, yes, from an applicant stress point of view, the more unmatched, the "easier" the match that year, but from the specialty succeeding point of view, am happier to see that it was a "harder" match, ie, most spots filled.

                                  Pardon me for being ignorant (only MSII), but do all of these numbers mean that EM is highly competitive this year?

                                  Stands to reason thatnearly every program filled. That's a bit different from some numbers that I have seen in the past few years...although EM was still competitive.

                                  Where can you go an access this sort of information and data?

                                  Is there data on telling you how many students didn't match?

                                  Thanks
