List Ranking Different Specialties

Hi. I need opinion from some one experienced. I have interviewed in IM, Med-Peds and Peds. I have liked some Med-Peds and Peds programs more than IM. So, can I rank programs according to my liking or should I rank programs of one specialty first, then the programs of second specialty and then the third? Does it affect match outcome in anyway?

Yes, you can (and should, in my opinion) rank programs in your order of preference, irrespective of specialty. There is no need to rank all programs in a given specialty consecutively.
