Hey. Anyone else who's planning to apply as a couple for the upcoming match? I'm still trying to figure out the process. Anybody who can shed some light on it?

Default re:couple match 2016

I am applying. The process as far as I know is not much different than the single applicants till the time u create the ROL (though you may or may not indicate you couple match preference in your ERAS application as you want, so the PDs might know this issue beforehand). The real difference is only in the ROL(rank order list) where you put programs in pairs rank-wise, one pair is treated as one entity to match, you can also rank-wise create pairs with one person not matching.Your choice of pairs can depend on various things, but most commonly its guided by the geographical vicinity of the two programs.the process is fully described with examples on the match website. You don't need to worry about it till the interviews are over.

Is it a good idea to indicate on ERAs that you are couple matching? Will some programs not send you an invite if u r couple matching considering they'd be apprehensive that you'd choose their program if your partner isnt invited.
