Applying to different specialty in the SOAP

Many people come across this query when SOAP season approach, can we apply to specialty different than that we apply initially during the regular ERAS NRMP match?

Let us shed some light on the background of this question before giving the answer. SOAP as you know is the mini match which occur the week after the main match results come out to match a resident to unfilled position. So people who didn't match from one side and the programs with unfilled spots from the other side will be in this organized game.

The answer is yes you can apply to as much specialties you want in the SOAP even if you didn't apply to them during the regular match season. But you need to pay attention to the fact that you are limited yo total of 45 programs during the SOAP so make use of them and Apply wisely.
