List Mixed ranking of different specialty programs

Hi guys,I am confused about this thing. I have got interviews from IM, Med-peds and peds. I want to rank programs according to my liking. E.g, I am thinking of ranking my top choice IM programs first, then my top choice Med-Peds programs, then my Top choice Peds programs. I will rank rest of the IM,Med Peds and Peds programs later. I want to know that whether it affects ur matching in anyway if u do not rank programs based upon specialty but according to personal liking? Will mixed ranking harm me in any way? I hope u understand wat i m asking about. Thanks

I am also doing the same thing, But with couple of other fields. But I am not ranking it this way at all.

I am ranking my Preferred Specialty first and my Second after that.
