Scramble - verbal contract?

Postby scrabble » Sun Mar 12, 2006 6:30 am

I think I will probably be participating in the post-match scramble.

IF a program director says on the phone that I am accepted, what kind of assurance do I have that he won't swap me out for someone else a few hours later (after I have declined all other offers)? Does the NRMP system have some way of letting me know that I have indeed been accepted?

Thanks, and good luck to everyone!

I am not sure about it, how it works. but I think once they promise you, they will delete the available vacancy from NRMP site. so in NRMP, every hour the list gets renewed, about the available positions.

And that decision is final (in the system), I presume? Can anyone else shed some light on this?

bansal, thanks for the prompt response.

They will also fax you a contract and will ask you to sign it and fax back within 30-60 minutes. The programs also need assurance that you are not going to fish for a better opportunity.
