Uploaded by univoflouisville on 17.03.2011

The Match is our own March Madness, if you will.
And it is, really a program that is
able to match students with residency programs.
So they know at this point they have matched somewhere.
So, as you can imagine, the atmosphere on Match Day
is really one of excitement.
Student: "I'm very excited. Thank you so much."
Sarina: "ou didn't even think about it until
they made you sit down and everyone started talking.
So, I was perfectly happy go lucky until Dr. Ganzel started talking.
And then you walk up there for the first time. I got goose bumps all over.
The students are excited, they're anxious.
There's a time at noon, where all the envelopes get distributed.
And then the students open their envelopes and find out where they're going.
Sounds: "Yeah! Wow! Houston. Nice!"
Sounds continue: "Where you going? Northwestern!"

I am absolutely thrilled and energetic. I'ts my number one choice.
It's where I want to go, where I want to practice and where I want to do my residency.
So I am more than excited.
Allison: Honestly I am in a little bit of shock.
It's exciting, very exciting. It's a pretty crazy process.
There aren't too many people who open an envelope and
