Question Is ranking guarantees the match!

Is matching to a program guaranteed once a person gets interviews and ranks them ?

Not at all.

Getting interviews and ranking them only gives you the chance to be matched but there's no guarantee at all.

Your chances get higher as you get more interviews.
