Match Day is in Three Weeks.
Following is a collection of OHSU MS4 reflections, as understood from personal experiences and facebook postings:
– Shoot. I love the ICU. Is it too late to switch to anesthesia/critical care?
– MS4 A: Done with interviews!
– MS4 B: Done with interviews!
– MS4 C: Done with interviews!
– MS4 D: Done with interviews!
– Interviewer, via email: I was interviewing someone today, and remembered when you interviewed here. I was wondering if I could convince you to join our team.
– So, we think you’re great. Are you ranking us first or not?
– “I’m ranking you first.” (No response.)
– “I’m ranking you very highly.” “There are lots of great programs for you out there!”
– “I’m ranking you very highly.” “We’d love for you to train here with us.”
– “I’m ranking you very highly.” “We hope to see you this summer!”
– Shoot. I still love surgery. Is it too late to switch to general surgery?
– MS4 E: Finally. Done. With. Interviews.
– “Should I change my rank list or should I trust my instincts from a time when I was less sleep deprived and royally freaked out?” (MS4, post-call)
– The complete conjugation of the verb ‘rankar,’ or, ‘to rank.’
– Several people who switched around programs #4-8-ish at the last minute.
– About 200 line items for a couples’ match. (Folks, this is not out of the ordinary.)
– Should I change my list? (Posted four minutes before the submission deadline.)
– Someone’s actual rank list. (After the NRMP closed at 6pm PST.)
– May need benzos very soon.
– Trust the Match.
