Now that the rank list is final/almost final, I was curious to find out which programs have made phone calls, or emails/letters, stating that you would be ranked high. If you could post the name of the program, the way you were contacted, and what was said so we can compare whether this is done in a selective way, or a mass contact to improve the programs chance of not going to far on their list. Since list cannot be changed at this time (in a few hours) I figured it would be fun to see what kind of contact really happens after interviews.

I applied to 7 programs, emailed all of them maybe a week before the deadline for ROL. Never got a phone call and only received 2 emails in response.
