List It's time to rank the programs!

So, next week is the deadline for the ROL.
How does the program director and the attendings select the applicants and when?
One PD called me telling me that they really liked me and that I am a very strong applicant,another attending mentioned he would advcate for me ? Should we trust them? is this a sign that they will rank me highly?
Good luck to everyone!

Yes, PDs usually are honest especially if it was not a generic letter. Make sure you rank them in your NRMP system.
Goodluck

You rank all the programs you interviewed with whether categorical or prelim (depend on your application and the agreement during the interview with the PDs). You rank first the categorical programs on top then the advanced programs together with the prelim supplemental list then the prelim programs again all together in the bottom.
