Match Day 2008

Match Success for the Class of 2008!

With much pomp and a great deal of circumstance, the Pritzker Class of 2008 tore into their Match Day Letters at approximately 11:00 a.m. CST on March 20, revealing where they would be spending the next years of their lives. 100% of students who sought a position matched — an outstanding accomplishment. The National Resident Match Program (NRMP) reports that, “More than 94% of seniors who applied for residencies this year [successfully matched to a program] — the highest percentage in more than three decades.” Not only successful, this year’s match was also the largest in history, with more than 28,000 students entering the process and vying for nearly 22,250 residency spots.

Congratulations, Class of 2008!
