Recent 2015 Match results are in and you can now see the full results of the impact that the Rank Order Lists (ROL) for the Match had this year. Interesting to note that average length of ROLs increased steadily (slowly) from 2002 – 2015 from approx 8 programs, to almost 12 programs for each applicant that matched (94.3%) matched in 2015, and for unmatched applicants the average ROL length was 7. Perhaps important to add a few more programs to your list when ranking your programs.
U.S. seniors consistently have the highest match rate and the longest average ROLs. Although there are small year-to-year variations, each year about 94 percent of U.S. seniors match to first-year positions.
