Match Week Activities

2012 Match Week -- All times are listed in Central Standard Time (CST).
Friday, March 9:
Although not technically part of Match Week, an important and "scary" event will take place--the NRMP will send an email to EVERYONE indicating each applicant's ELIGIBILITY to participate in the Scramble (Supplemental Offer and Acceptance Program (SOAP)) during the following week. This email will not say that you have to scramble, just that if you do not match you may/may not participate in the Scramble.
Monday, March 12:
Match/No-Match notification will be sent by the NRMP via email at 11:00 a.m.. Anyone who is unmatched or only partially matched will need to come to the Office of Admissions and Student Affairs to meet with Dr. Lahoti or Dr. McNeese to establish a game plan for the scramble. At 12:00 p.m. SOAP participants may begin sending applications.
