It's Almost Time
to Enter Your Rank Order List!

Students will enter rank order lists using the NRMP's WebROLIC program, found on the NRMP web site. WebROLIC will be open from January 15th until 9:00 p.m. (EST) on February 22nd. You must have your AAMC ID Code and Password to access the program.

The NRMP has released a report entitled Impact of Length of Rank Order List on Match Results on their web site. Take a look!

Your AAMC ID and Password are confidential. Please don't share them! Limiting the information provided on the NRMP web site to registered applicants will reduce the number of people looking for positions during the "Scramble." This means that the unregistered people who otherwise would be looking for positions alongside registered applicants (that's YOU!) must wait until Match Day to begin their searches for positions. Please record your Applicant Code and Password and keep them with you at all times. Student Affairs does not have any knowledge of your password; if you lose it, you will have to contact the NRMP - 202/828-0676

AAMC Graduation Questionnaire

The 2012 Graduation Questionnaire will be available starting February 15. The questionnaire assesses more than 200 items covering a wide variety of topics. These include educational experiences, student support programs, and perceived potential problems. The GQ also gathers information on student debt and career plans. Data is analyzed for each school, compared across schools and then reported to each participating school. The reports are 100% anonymous. We need your feedback. The benefits and wisdom gained from your feedback have helped create numerous positive changes in such things as curriculum and policy. All students need to complete this evaluation before Match Day.
