Prepare Your Rankings of Programs

Enter and Certify Your Rank Order List

Rank Order Lists must be entered and certified in the NMS Match System accessible from this web site. The NMS Match System will be available for Match participants to enter Rank Order Lists as follows:

NMS Match System Opens For Rankings: January 9, 2018
Rank Order List Deadline: January 19, 2018 at 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time

Instructions for using the NMS Match System to submit your Rank Order List are provided in the section titled Enter Your Rankings. You will note that one of the steps involves certifying your Rank Order List in the NMS Match System. This is a critical step.

Rank Order Lists that are not certified will NOT be used in the Match.

Your Rank Order List can be entered in one or more sessions. However, you are advised to certify your Rank Order List at the end of each session in which you have updated your rankings, rather than waiting until the Rank Order List deadline to certify your list.

You can make changes to your list, even after it has been certified, at any time until the Rank Order List deadline. However, whenever you change your rankings, you will have to re-certify your list in order for it to be used in the Match.
