    Does anybody have any specific info on the unmatched sites? Why did they not fill their quota? Any glaring weaknesses or strengths in the program?



    Congrads to everybody that matched, and good luck to everybody in the scramble.

    Some are weak programs, but then again other weak programs did fill this year. Lots is location, ie Penn State. Excellent program, excellent residents, huge cases, but the rural location turns a lot of people off. UMass is another one, Worcester isn't so happening but they have an excellent med school there. It isn't the best program in the world, but it is a decent university program that actually has at least one big name professor and they do some research. Other programs, NYU, Cornell, and Rush probably overestimated how popular they were and didn't rank enough people even though they got more than enough apps. Both are excellent programs by the way. Still others lack name, ie Baystate. Don't look at the list and assume that unfilled programs are weak. Look for trends over the last several years and you will see that some programs never really fill at all.

    Thanks 2nd year for the reply. Very helpful info. Does anybody else know anything about the programs that did not fill their quotas?
