Default Question

Like most IMG's who apply to multiple specialties, how do the stats change for ranking multiple specialties.

That how nrmp gives stats that if you have two programs on a ranking list, you have certain percent of matching. Now if one has three programs on the list and two are in family and one is in psych, does the percentage stays the same or its lower.

That's a really nice question, but to answer it you must refer to the structure of the Match, Does the Match process treat two different speciality as one? or is there a sub scale algorithm for different specialities, categories such as the advanced type, categorical, FAP, sponsored, prelim?
I think and thats me anticipating the algorithm treats different programs of the same category ( as in categorical) within the same algorithm, in way to make it make sense more the couples match is according to my understanding a match algorithm within the BIG main Match algorithm.

Take what I mentioned above with much of grain of salts.
