just want to know do the programs send an acknowledgement mail as well? I meant just to let us know they have received our application or it is clear if they send an e-mail that they will call us for an interview?

those figures are just averages. and there's always exception, i knew imgs having 2-3 IVs still got matched.

got it from those who matched last yr. i've got a couple of AMG relatives and also img classmates already in PGY1 now. i befriended & asked every caribb grads during my rotations(most of them were waiting for 2012 match, previously).

that's how i got it. thru being mr. congeniality...
