1 in 5 applicants do not match.

A total of 45% of all applicants who obtained a position matched to their first choice internship program, approximately two-thirds (66%) received one of their top two choices, and nearly four-in-five (78%) received one of their top three choices.

What this means for me: Do not end up the "1 in 5", then roll the dice and become part of that 45% who get their first choice.

If I don't get my first choice, but match, most likely that will mean I will either have to move back to Bergen County or Connecticut, and I don't really want to do either. My first choice is my first choice by a lot.

2.5 weeks of waiting... we'll see what happens.
