That is, this process suffered from congestion (in precisely the sense explored in Roth and Xing, 1997): not enough offers and acceptances could be made to clear the market. Only about 50,000 students received offers initially, about 17,000 of whom received multiple offers. And when the process concluded, approximately 30,000 students had been assigned to a school that was nowhere on their choice list. Three features of this process particularly motivated NYC Department of Education's desire for a new matching system.

The size of the pool of incompatible patient-donor pairs who might be candidates for exchange. When a kidney patient brought a potential donor to his or her doctor to be tested for compatibility, donors who were found to be incompatible with their patient were mostly just sent home. They were not patients themselves, and often no medical record at all was retained to indicate that they might be available. And in any event, medical privacy laws made these potential donors' medical information unavailable.

What we see when we study markets in the process of unraveling is that offers not only come increasingly early, but also become dispersed in time and of increasingly short duration. 5 In 1945, American medical schools agreed not to release information about students before a specified date. This helped control the date of the market, but a new problem emerged: hospitals found that if some of the first offers they made were rejected after a period of deliberation, the candidates to whom they wished to make their next offers had often already accepted other positions.
