Withdraw From the Match

2022 ORMatch


Things to Know

If you accept a position at a program that is not participating in ORMatch, or if you will not be submitting any rankings of programs for any other reason, you must withdraw yourself from ORMatch by the Rank Order List deadline.

Applicants who withdraw from ORMatch will not be matched to a position. However, withdrawn applicants are permitted to seek positions in the Post-Match Process and will have access to information on positions available in the Post-Match Process.

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 not be able to send applications to programs and will not receive further communications about participating in ORMatch from NMS. However, you will be permitted to seek positions in the Post-Match Process and will have access to information on positions available in the Post-Match Process.

If you do not plan to submit rankings but want to be included on the List of Unmatched Applicants that is provided to programs in the Post-Match Process, you should withdraw in the NMS Match System and select the withdraw reason that indicates you are still seeking a position.

If you submit and certify a Rank Order List and you do not withdraw by the Rank Order List deadline, your Rank Order List 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.
