U of Chicago!

Was going to change my ROL last minute, but couldn't get on the nrmp website yesterday, and I fell asleep when I came home from the clinic today. Oh well, I had intended to change #4-6, but hopefully I won't go that far down the list.

Noelle- I think you totally clicked with the PD at Wake, so it probably isn't much of a long shot. I was jealous! :p

Of course it's my number one too. Whack Forest. We'll see how it goes.

Remember the stats on Peds folks and know that your numbers 2 and 3 were so good they were almost your number one, so it's not like you are going to be in dire straits (LIKE ME) if you go to #2. My #2 is a community IM :eek: program in the area. Very very nice people, but surprisingly few kids. ha ha :laugh:
Wow, I have had too much coffee this morning--- or is it I am so PSYCHED about your rank list!!

I shouldn't have had to guilt you. This is indeed an honor, a right of passage taken by every brave baby doctor that has walked before us. And besides, I told you to post your bottom three.

and what is that makes cincinatti so hard to spell (did i spell it right?)....the other day i tried to figure out the distance from my home to cinci on yahoo and it took me 6 or 7 attempts just to get map program to figure it out cause i kept spelling it wrong....i think it would be easier just not to apply there....i will consider it perhaps if they consider changing their name

Boston Children's (Harvard) + Boston Medical Center (BU)

MassGen is a separate Peds program:

Asking Cincinnati to change its name is like asking Cincinnatus to find a different name:

Anyone else nervous about this whole match thing? I mean I know I'll match probably in my top 3, but still, it's a little stressful to wait until March 17th to find out where I will be spending most of the next 3 years of my life. Good luck to all!

1) CHLA (big surprise)
2) UCI
3) USC
4) Phoenix Children's
5) Stanford

:laugh: The PD lists were due at the same time ours was. I was thinking the same thing. I flip flopped my top three 5,000 times! Good luck everyone. Keep posting your lists!

I am glad I did my rank list when I did as the weather here in Phx has gotten really nice and I may have chickened out of my top 2 if it was still rainy.

1. Kalamazoo/MSU
2. U IL peoria
3. St. Joe's - Phoenix
4. Christ/Hope Children's
5. Phx Children's

I assume the PD lists are in as my name is not very conspicuous???

Okay, since everyone else is sharing:

I went to a state medical school. I didn't get honors in any of my core rotations and my dean's letter said I was a bit "immature" based on the dislike for me by my adult cardiology attending. My NBME Part 1 score (equivalent to modern "USMLE step 1") was medicocre (can't even remember the score, but maybe 60%ile at best overall). I had no publications. Still, I submitted this top 3 (I interviewed at 6 or 7 and ranked 5) expecting to get my #1:

1. Children's Mercy in Kansas City
2. Children's Memorial in Chicago
3. Children's in Akron, Ohio
4. Michael Reese in Chicago
5. Louisville (Kosair)


I didn't get #1 :(

but did match and was not unhappy on match day or with my program :)

I think making people stand up and announce where they matched is inappropriate. I go over and talk to some of the students I know after the match and I know not everyone is happy with where they match, although usually things work out well in pedi in the end.

Good luck to all

Regards

Proof that not getting your #1 is not a career killer! Robert Marion, who wrote "Learning to Play God", "The Intern Blues", and several other books (and happens to be a Pediatric Medical Geneticist - my career choice) did not get his #1 OR #2 choice. And he turned out fine. Life is what you make of it!

And I completely agree about the "announcing" thing. I can imagine having to "announce" my match, having it be Boston Children's (#1 in the US, #10 on my list) and having people think that I'm thrilled to go there. Well, I'd rather go there than go unmatched, but I'd be MUCH happier at the other nine programs I ranked above it. (Not denegrating BC...it's good, but not as good for me).

Yes but not matching at #1 can be a marriage and therefore soul-killer. I was accepted to a med school, but my husband did not match there due to major politics. We had already lived 4 years 800 miles apart. Neither school was cooperative or cared about the marriage, so I lost 2 years of my life living in the middle of nowhere and doing nothing with my education for 2 years until the Ba$tards finally let me in here.

On announcing, we don't, but we are trying to get a voluntary chance to do it so we don't have to say it OVER and OVER and OVER again in the 2 hours afterwards. (Been there before, too, and it was awful having to say it so many times.) Besides, people can often tell by looking at you when you first open it whether you are thrilled or not.

OBP,

Thanks for sharing. It's inspiring to see that not all great pediatricians got their #1's. Although I did not get 1. Baylor or 2. Children's Mercy, I did match at Arkansas Children's and still hope to work with you in the future. :)
