In Reply In our Viewpoint, we proposed a “star system” to address many of the problems mentioned in the otolaryngology–head and neck surgery (Oto-HNS) literature regarding the National Resident Matching Program (“the Match”).1 Namely, our system has the primary goal of improving the fit between program and applicant while increasing transparency and decreasing interview congestion and time burden. We appreciate the valuable comments made by Gray et al in their letter.
