    Gone through the Match?

    Advertisements



    I was wondering if a few people who've already gone through the Match could offer some advice.

    What are the pros and cons to the following...

    1) Contacting programs who have rejected you to express your strong interest in their program and possibly ask to be put on a waiting list

    2) Contacting programs that still haven't responded either way to your application by December (if so what's the best way to go about this)

    Thanks!!!

    Hey M.

    M. - Just tossing out my opinion. What is there to lose, really. When you think of the programs that have already rejected, there definitely isnt any harm in it. I wouldnt recommend it for all programs, just because I sympathize with all the program coordinators who could be flooded with phone calls and emails. But if there are one or two programs that a student was really really interested in, and that strong desire maybe didnt come through in the general application or personal statement, then I would go for it. For programs that havent responded by December, it probably is also worth a try. Programs do hold out on some applicants in case interviews are cancelled and so on, so there is a bit of a risk of pestering when a student might have been next on the call list, but the odds of hearing back from anyone well into December are likely slim to none. So in my opinion, it is worth a shot.

    Well, I'm getting most of my interviews these days not back in November.
