Default Did anyone receive a rank letter like this?

Dear IMG,
We have submitted our rank list and wish to inform you that everyone receiving this notice has been ranked in the upper 1/3 of those interviewed. We wish you the best on Match Day and hope to see you here in July.
Good Luck!

Is it true that if I rank the hospital high, then I have a big chance to get matched?
Sorry, I do not know anything about match, I do not have preference for hospitals, I just want to get an offer. This year, it is very hard, even just for one IV.

Rank upon your preference only. for example if program A ranks you first and you rank them 10th, then if you didn't match with any of your 9 programs you will for sure match with your tenth.

Rank them in order of preference, it doesn't matter if you rank them high, it won't increase your chances.

If you don't match in higher rank, you will match is a lower one, as long as they ranked you high enough

I also interviewed there and received no such email so they might be telling the truth. However, it doesn't matter. It is a useless email. Mercy must think the top 1/3 of candidates they interviewed are very naive...it doesn't matter where you rank them..if they ranked you high you should actually rank them after every other program that you desire instead of them...if you don't get your preference you'll get mercy lol
