Congratulations! You have matched.

Check the Match Site at on Thursday, March 17, 2011, at 1:00 PM Eastern time to find out where you matched. Because you are matched, you will not have access to any information about unfilled programs.

My first thought is the email is not valid. I can see some person thinking it would be funny to send out a bogus email spoofing the NRMP saying you matched. How devastating would that be to then log into the site to find out that you really did not. Reminds me of the time during my undergraduate days when I had my 3rd exam for Organic Chemistry in the morning after the University of Michigan was in the NCAA basketball tournament finals. Needless to say, I did not think I did well on the exam. So in my lab, they gave us scores when we came in and gave the graded exam when the lab was over. When he said my score, I got 30 above the mean. I was elated. What a surprise! As I was leaving 3 hours later, I got my exam as I walked out and it was 30 below the mean. I broke into sweats. I went back to the TA who said yes, I did get 30 above mean but then said, oh ,wait, my mistake, I accidentally went down one line.

Thank goodness that was not the case this time. I matched to pediatrics so the next three years for me are taken care of.

The only problem I had was figuring out where to go to see that I matched. I was not sure which website and what page to go to. It turns out that it is posted on the main page once you log into the website. I wasn’t sure if it was under one of the tabs. There is only one other person in my starting class who went through the match out of about 20 people that started with me. Unfortunately, she did not match in internal medicine and will have to scramble. Thankfully, I will not be joining her.

Thursday at 1pm EST, I find out where I will be going. For some reason I was not too nervous about finding out IF I matched. I felt confident that I did well in my interviews and was happy when I got unsolicited emails from people at various programs a week before the rank lists had to go in saying that they hope I rank them highly.
