    ROL should reflect your preference...
    You prefer anesthesia, so the first programs in your rank order list should be the ones for anesthesia "the ones that interviewed you and you liked them".
    then, lets say when you reach no.10 on your ROL, add the IM programs, once more the one that interviewed you & you liked.

    in this way you will make sure that your chances are higher to get matched...

    Good Luck

    Hmmm.....I might be wrong but I think what nudoc is trying to ask....and I'd like to know that too actually is what if some one rank an anesthesia program as no 1 choice but for one reason or another they want to rank another IM program as no 2, may be another IM program as NO 3, and one more anesthesia program as 4........basically if we can mix and match?
    I was under the impression that we can do this. Am I righ?

    That's the impression I get as well. However, if you're only applying to say IM as a last resort if you can't get into Anesth then you should put the IM programs at the end.
