NRMP Rank List Submission

Rank lists may be submitted starting January 15th and ending February 23rd. Again, the worst thing for you to do is to wait for the last moment. Last moment impulse changes will also lead to regrets. So, meditate on your rank list well in advance and submit it early. This way, you will have plenty of time to consider.

For the submitted fee, applicants are permitted to make a rank list of 15 programs. If one desires to rank more than their allotted number, each extra program ranked costs $30.

You’ll have to certify the rank list when it is ready. Although the process of certification looks really official and final, you can always change it and certify it again (as long as you do so before February 23rd). If you fail to certify your rank list, it will not be accepted. If you change and do not certify, your last certified rank list will be accepted.

If you prematch, do not forget to withdraw from the main match (that is, NRMP) before the rank order list deadline. If you have submitted a rank list and you do not withdraw, you are legally obligated to accept the appointment made to you by the main match, even if you have accepted a prior prematch.

It is here, on the NRMP website that you will find out where you matched. Relevant days have been described below:

Monday of Match Week (say, March 14th):    You find out if you matched (by email)
Tuesday of Match Week (say, March 15th):    List of unfilled programs available to unmatched candidates (for scramble)
Thursday of Match Week (say, March 17th):    Match results available!
