The struggles of the rank list

Now that B has matched and the dust has settled, I want to share a little bit about our Match process. B and I did not agree on what he should list No. 1 on his rank list. It makes sense. B did an away rotation at a Top 5 program and loved it. And […]


B matched into a urology residency program yesterday!!! He hates it when I get “braggy” but one-third of all urology residency applicants don’t match, so matching is an accomplishment in itself.
