yes, ROL is confusing. but nobody can figure it out better than yourself. each applicant has different lists of hosps, so one can only comment on the hosp he/she has IVed at.

i must tell you that fellowships doesn't solely depend on the program you did your residency. no matter how strong the fellowship placement of the program is, but if you weren't pro-active (no research, no publications, low scores, no good feedbacks from faculty) during your residency, you still won't be able to get into fellowship. likewise, no matter how weak the fellowship rate of the program but if your very active & work your heart out(lots research, good scores, good faculty feedbacks,etc), you would still get into a fellowship. I IVed at a strong program, chief didn't even matched in cardio. But i had a small program in a small town, 1 senior got cardio & 1 got GI & 2 got heme..

and as a tip, UI at urbana only has 2 graduates who got fellowship last yr.

just my 0.2cents. hope this helps & good luck.
