As the applicant fulfills these requirements, the status will change from Incomplete to Complete. The system also shows you the number of reference letter requests the applicant has made and how many letters have been received. Applicants who have not submitted any applications will have the Submitted Application field marked asIncomplete. When applications are submitted, the number of submitted applications will be shown.

    Note that the number of applications shown for each student includes both applications submitted in the Match and MPII.

    The Ranks section shows the number of ranks the applicant has entered into their Rank Order List. It also indicates whether or not the list has been certified. Only certified Rank Order Lists will be used in the matching process.

    Note that the number of ranks and certification status is shown only for students participating in MPII. Rank Order List information for students who obtained a position in the Match is no longer available in the NMS Match System.
