OD is right. It would be very unlikely that a chairman or director would tell an applicant that they are "ranked to match" or "you are our top choice" (although I'm sure some of you probably did hear something like this).

This is a game so most faculty, if they call anyone, would probably say something like "we'd like to see you here" or "have you started house hunting" or "the faculty looked favorably upon your application."

Frequent calls or a call from a chair or program director is a good sign, but as always PLAY THE GAME AND DON'T TRUST ANYONE!

Good luck.

I will dissent here and say that they really are not breaking the rules by calling you and telling you where you are ranked... just can't solicit the info...

The NRMP rules state (this is direct from the user guide),
The Policies of the NRMP do not preclude one from expressing a high level of interest in the other. Although not recommended, it is not a Match violation for an applicant or a program to tell the other how one will be ranked; however, any attempt to request such information is a violation. Statements implying a commitment should be avoided. Rank Order Lists take precedence over verbal commitments.
