To the Editor As a program director, I enjoyed the viewpoints shared by Christophel and Levine1 regarding the deluge of applicants received by otolaryngology residencies. Don’t get me wrong: I wish there were a process that allowed me to spend less time reviewing applications and arrive at a match perfect for our program. However, I wonder whether the downsides proposed in their Viewpoint are evident.
