Withdraw from the Match

2018 ORMatch


Before You Withdraw

Only programs that are no longer offering positions to begin in 2018 should withdraw from the Match.

If a program has positions available that start in 2018 that you would like to fill, but has no acceptable applicants to rank, and you wish to include the program on the List of Programs with Available Positions after the Match, the program should not be withdrawn. Instead, you should use the NMS Match System to certify a Rank Order List with no applicants. This indicates to NMS that the program is still active, but you have no rankings of applicants to submit for the program.

Implications of Withdrawing

A withdrawn program will not be included in the matching process, will not be matched with any applicants, and will not be included on the List of Programs with Available Positions that is posted for the use of unmatched applicants when the ORMatch results are released.

If you withdraw a program, any rankings of applicants that may have been submitted for the program will not be used in the Match. Programs that submit a certified Rank Order List, and that do not withdraw by the Rank Order List deadline, will be included in the Match and will be obliged to accept the Match results.

  • Log in to the NMS Match System for the program
