        1998 residence match Cover:
This month, members of the Class of '98 find out the results of the residency match — considered by many a hit-and-miss affair. Student Aaron Cass takes a light-hearted look at the pressures involved (page 631), and match coordinator Sandra Banner reports that she expects mostly positive results (page 635).

C'est ce mois-ci que les étudiants de la promotion de 1998 apprennent les résultats de leur demande de jumelage en résidence — système que nombre d'entre eux voient comme un vaste jeu de hasard. L'étudiant Aaron Cass relate avec humour la tension que vivent les étudiants (page 631), tandis que la coordonnatrice de jumelage Sandra Banner rapporte prévoir des résultats surtout positifs (page 635).
