Withdraw From the Match

The 2018 APPCN Match


Things to Know

If you will not be submitting any rankings of programs, you must withdraw yourself from the Match by the Rank Order List Deadline.

Applicants who withdraw from the Match will not be matched to a position. However, withdrawn applicants are permitted to seek positions after the Match. They will be able to access information on positions that remain available after the Match.

Implications of Withdrawing

If you withdraw, you will not be matched to a position. Any rankings of programs you may have submitted will not be used in the Match. You will also not receive further communications about participating in the Match from NMS.

If you enter and certify a Rank Order List and do not withdraw by the Rank Order List deadline, your rankings will be included in the Match. If you are matched with a program, you must accept the position with which you are matched as described in the Applicant Agreement. If you do not accept your Match result, APPCN will review your situation and may impose penalties on you, including barring you from participating in future Matches.
