    A very simple thing to do is to randomly rank a few programs you've not applied to or interviewed at. This way, you will not "match" to any program... and can go onto your prematch program.

    Otherwise, write to NRMP and ask to withdraw.

    There might be a simpler way than this, but I just noticed that if you click on each individual program you'll see the following statement at the top...

    "I would like to notify this program that I am withdrawing myself."

    I'm sure you just check the box next to that statement and click select at the bottom of the page.

    Ah...even better...check the FAQ's

    How can I withdraw my AMCAS application?
    To withdraw your application, AMCAS must receive a signed written request before your file begins the Verification process. Once the file has been withdrawn, it cannot be reactivated for that application year. You do not need to request a withdrawal if you have not submitted your AMCAS application.
    Your withdrawal request must include your name, AAMC ID #, social security number, date of birth, reason for withdrawal, your signature, and the following statement:
    "I understand that the decision to withdraw my 2007 AMCAS application is final and that once withdrawn, I will not be able to be re-instated."
    You may send your request via fax or mail to:
    AMCAS
    2450 N Street NW Washington
    DC 20037-1300
    Fax: (202) 828-1120
    Please Note: An application cannot be withdrawn if monies are owed to AMCAS. All monies must be paid before an application can be withdrawn. If your AMCAS application has completed processing, it may not be withdrawn and you will not receive a refund.

    withdrawing

    Withdrawing from the match is done through the R3 system:

    NRMP: Residency Match Independent Applicants

    AMCAS is for medical school applications.
