I don’t normally post on Sundays but I just wanted to pop in and say GOOD LUCK to all of the future RDs out there who are will find out if they were matched to a dietetic internship program today.
DI programs select applicants based off a matching process. They rank their applicants in order of desired acceptance, applicants rank programs in the order in which they’d like to be selected and a magic computer program matches them to a program.
The match rate is only 50%, which I consider to be pretty low considering you have to complete an internship to become an RD.
I will never forgot the day I found out I was matched to Utah State. I had applied to 5 programs and ranked Utah as my #1. I created a countdown in my phone the day I submitted all of my applications and literally looked at it every single day until match day. I was so happy when I logged in online and found out I was matched with USU… it was an awesome feeling
Sending lots of good vibes to everyone out there today!!
