Four years of studying at the University of Maryland School of Medicine comes down to an envelope. Everyone is hoping for the perfect match: the school they listed as #1 for their residency.

As a huge crowd watches inside the Hippodrome Theater medical students reveal the exciting news inside.

While students select their first, second and third choices, it’s a computer that has the final say on their futures.

Elaine Bigelow is headed to Hopkins for ENT residency.

She says she’s excited to stay here because she’s on the Chesapeake Women’s Rugby team.

“I  love this city I ‘m really happy I get to stay, my mom is nearby I have a lot of wonderful family & friends here so I am thrilled,” said Bigelow.
