* Prematch vs match
  toria1092 - 10/25/19 06:09
  Hi, I am an IMG applying to Psychiatry. Good CV! With 7 interviews so far. However 2 of them are not participating in the NRMP (5IV for the match).
My IVs are: -Jackson Memorial Hospital
-Case Western (metrohealth)
-St Louis Univ
-Icahn school at Mount Sinai (Elmhurst) - (not in the NRMP)
-Lincoln Med. Center
-St. Barnabas (not in the NRMP)
-Detroit med center/wayne

In the case that Elmhurst offers me a prematch. Should I accept it? Is it a good program? Its board pass rate is 87%. But I am very anxious about this. I really would like Jackson, but idk. Thank you in advance!

  I know someone who completed her residency from there and is now a GI fellow. She, like yourself, had 8 interviews but did not want to risk it. She was done the match process by the end of November and celebrating till July the following year.

This is a decent program and if I were you I would take it ASAP.

  thank you very much for the response. So I went to the interview in Elmhurst and felt very good, I liked the atmosphere and the residents seemed happy. They offered me the prematch yesterday and I accepted it!!

It is a very hard decision but I hope I made the right choice :)
