About Importing Rankings From Your Applications
You can import the applicants who submitted applications to your program(s) into your Rank Order List.
If you have assigned a Review Status to your applications, you can filter which applicants will be imported by the Review Status (e.g., select only those whose status is "Will be Ranked"). If you have rated your applications, the applicants will be imported in order of their Rating (highest to lowest).
Once imported, you can still edit your list to add any acceptable applicants, remove any unacceptable applicants, or reorder applicants. Ensure the applicants on your Rank Order List are ranked in order of your true preference.
When your rankings are finalized, you must certify the list for it to be used in the Match.
- Log in to the NMS Match System
- Select Rankings from the menu
- Select the link to import applicants from Your Applications near the top of the page. This link is only shown if no applicants are on your Rank Order List.
Filter the applicants who will be imported into the Rank Order List
Filter by Review Status
If you have assigned a Review Status to your applications, you can filter which applicants will be imported by the Review Status. Typically, Program Coordinators will import applicants who they have marked as "Interviewed" or "Will be Ranked". If you have not assigned a Review Status to each application, select the Review Status of "All".
Filter by Programs Where Application was Submitted
If your residency offers more than one program, you can filter which applicants are imported into the Rank Order List based on the program to which they applied. Typically, Program Coordinators will import the applicants who applied for the specific program for which they are importing rankings. However, you may want to include applicants to other programs under certain circumstances, for example: (i) the residency changed the programs being offered in the Match after applications were received; (ii) the residency advised applicants to one program that they might be interested in the other program being offered; or, (iii) after interviewing at the residency, applicants to one program indicated they may be interested in another program at the residency that they had not considered when they applied.
- Filter by Review Status
After the import, you may add additional acceptable applicants to your list, remove any unacceptable applicants, and reorder applicants using the web interface.
