Info prematch

hey. i was wondering if anyone knows more about the procedure for prematches. if one gets a prematch offer and signs a letter of intent signed by the program director, is that enough? and when r the contracts usually signed...before the match, or only after match with the rest of the residents who matched??

Yes this is enough. Contracts are signed after the match usually sent to your mail.

thanks again! so there's no need to wait for a contract, a letter of intent is sufficient confirmation to withdraw?
