Looking at these numbers, I don't think you're going to get a good crossection; people who got there #1 are much more likely to post than those that scrambled.
Still be brave! Its anonymous
Yeah the data we have right now with 112 votes is almost identical to general population.Thanks for the chart! I love being wrong when pleasantly surprised From other threads, would have expected the break down to be different. Again, good to be wrong in that instance. Congrats to all
NRMP would count that as #3, but for the sake of this poll, I lumped categorical and advanced programs within the same institution as a single rank.If you ranked:
1) Program A (categorical)
2) Program A (advanced)
3) Program B
4) Program C...
and matched at B ... is that rank 2 or 3? (For the purposes of this thread, and for the purposes of the NRMP statistics?)
This poll simply collects data on the number on the rank list in which someone matched. It has nothing to do with anyone's satisfaction with that match..Sorry to be the analytical one, but this poll obviously has to be taken with the proverbial grain of salt.
For example, I was ecstatic to match to my #2 choice in RadOnc, but would have been happy with my #10 choice. On the other hand, I had a friend who was livid b/c he got his #2 choice in Internal Medicine...just food for thought.
I think he/she was just trying to point out that it's much (MUCH) easier to get your #1 choice in the likes of family medicine than it is in derm.This poll simply collects data on the number on the rank list in which someone matched. It has nothing to do with anyone's satisfaction with that match..
I don't see where all this analysis you're talking about is coming from? I don't think anyone else was trying to gather this data to say that people had a good or bad experience with the match or make any other extrapolation for people's happiness.
