What does generic email of PD to consider them highly, before match means?

Asked 6 months ago by Guest (120 points)

I got an email from new PD of the program where I interviewed, and mentioned me to consider their program for the residency and they ensure to provide the best training ( seems generic though). What does it mean? Have they ranked me high enough to match ? How should we respond in such case ? Please suggest me.

You do not need to respond to these emails at all. My suggestion is that you rank the programs in the order that you like them the best. A program director's email should NOT influence your match list. Match communication has historically been a poor indicator of whether someone will match at a particular program.
