I'm super nervous- hoping tomorrow won't be awkward, since my home institution is my #1.... but (?) fully prepared just in case I get the dreaded email...Does anyone know if programs find out before candidates? The wording from the AUA website is kind of confusing, and I've had a PD tell me that they used to get a fax at 12:01 am, but now it's email. Not sure if they find out first via email now.Thinking about not checking my email...anyone else plan on deferring checking the email?
i was thinking about not checking my email too...well not right away... were you not planning to check your email at all??
I figured, if I match at my home institution- I'll see my PD anyways.. he will know a) if I matched and b)where I matched (they get a master list)... either that or hope for the congratulatory phone call from the place where I matched.ohhhh. so nervous! not sure how i'm gonna fall asleep.
hmm. that approach seems a little more nerve wracking to me. plus, when and if your PD comes up to you and says "congrats on matching at X"...you will be hearing it for the first time, so you might not know how you will react. i'd check the email if i were you.
