Default How to apply for the scramble??

I am tryng to participate the scramble... I have two problems: when I go to nrmp I can see no list of residencies that could be appliable for the scrumble, as I just see a message sayong I will be able to see tis list starting from march the 10 at 12... and apparently we are one day later than that...
2 problem is when I go to ERAS. It is said I can reapply to up to 30 residencies that I have applied for already...but when I clikc on those programs, then I still see 0 programs selected... please help!

Default Good Luck

The scramble match starts @ March 16th, 2010 @ 12:00 Noon Eastern Time exactly.

The list of unfilled positions will be posted on the NRMP website half an hour before that which means @ 11:30 AM but you cannot apply before 12:00 Noon exactly.

On ERAS you cannot reapply again for those programs until the dates and times (mentioned above) pass, that's why it's not working with you right now.

By the way it might not be a good idea to reapply to programs that you have already applied for in the main match and they did not rank you or they did not even send you for interview. See explanation for this here

Good luck
