    some programs-rare today- have a structure where in after the first year they cut out the lesser residents and you only move up if your inter the top tier. its a terrible system on so many fronts that it is foruntately going the way of the do do. non-pyramidal structures are the (majority) that dont do this. not to be confused with prelim years which take more people for the first year than they will keep because these "extras" are already assiged to go into a specialty the next year.
