In this photo, Stanford student Danica Lomeli hugs her father, Luis, while her mother, Diana, reacts to the news that Danica will be doing her residency in family medicine at UCLA.
This year's class was particularly successful, with all 91 students matching, 70 percent receiving their first choice and 85 percent one of their top three choices. Students matched in 15 different states, with two-thirds divided between Massachusetts and California. Nineteen matched with Stanford residencies.
