    Please Help. I have matched. Now what?

    Advertisements



    I matched into an IM program. What should I do next? Should I call the program or wait for them to call me? I want to do FP, should I decline and hopefully get an FP somewhere?

    If you really want an FP spot, you better hurry up and scramble for a spot. Programs with open spots are now frantically trying to fill their spots. Make sure you have a spot in FP before turning down your IM spot, or you may go jobless. NRMPs website has a list of unfilled spots. Best of luck, G

    Call them up tomorrow and thanks them. I received my package from the program a week later.

    It is not a good idea to switch program now.

    Uh, I may be wrong on this, but I'm pretty sure when u sign up for the match, NRMP states that wherever you match to, u MUST goto that spot. Can u imagine if people matched but decided to scramble for a better spot? That'd be a total mess!
