Default Waivers and reapplying to match


I will be filing a waiver because I won't be able to get my employment authorization card ready before July 1st. I had matched in NYC.
If the waiver is granted or denied, will programs know whenever I am able to apply for residency again that I had matched before and had a waiver filed?

Please tell me your experiences or what you know

Think he/she means EAD. It took about 4-5 months for my sister to get her EAD. Anyways, with regard to applying for a waiver I am not sure if not having a vaild visa counts as extreme hardship(?), I guess it would. If the waiver is granted though, you should not have any problems with future matches.
