List of Registered Students
Directors of Residencies can access an online list of students who graduated or will graduate from their school or college and are registered for ORMatch. To access the List, you are required to log in to the NMS Match System.
The list is updated in real time, as additional students register for ORMatch. Students may register to participate in ORMatch until the deadline date for submission of Rank Order Lists (March 2, 2018).
Students who registered to participate in ORMatch but have subsequently withdrawn are included in the list, but are flagged as "Withdrawn". Please note that withdrawn students may change their status and decide to participate in the Match at any time until the Rank Order List deadline. If you have any questions concerning the status of a student in ORMatch you should contact the student directly.
Applications to Affiliated Residency Sites
Directors of Residencies can access an online list of all the residency sites affiliated with their school that have registered to participate in ORMatch. Each residency site in the list has a link that provides access to a List of Applicants who have submitted applications to that residency site. Residency Sites that offer more than one program or track in ORMatch will have all applicants to their programs listed on the same page, organized by program.
The ORMatch application submitted by each applicant can be downloaded as a PDF document from the List of Applicants by clicking on the applicant's name. The contents of the application submitted by each applicant includes a standard set of contact, demographic, educational and National Board of Examiners in Optometry score information. The Lists of Applicants will be updated on a nightly basis.
Programs are free to set their own application requirements and deadline date. Evaluations and interviews are conducted independent of ORMatch.
The last day applicants can submit an ORMatch application form to programs using the ORMatch Application Service is January 31, 2018. Programs may still accept applications after this date, but all application information, including NBEO Score Report Data, must be provided to the program directly by the applicant. Applicants who apply to programs after the January 31, 2018 closing date must still register for and participate in ORMatch in order to obtain a position in a program through ORMatch.
Please note: Applications submitted online using the NMS Match System do not constitute a complete application to any of the programs participating in ORMatch. Applicants must still submit any additional supporting documents required by programs (e.g., CVs, letters of reference, transcripts, personal statements, etc.) directly to the programs to which they are applying.
