  Is it a good idea to ask a program about the ranking process? Can we ask them whether I am a strong contender for their residency program.Does it leave a negative impression.Any inputs will be appreciated.

  You can ask this in an indirect way!
Such as: What factors do you consider when you rank applicants?

  This question is not going to help you in anyway.
Even if they tell you that you will be ranked highly it is not helpful.
Give your best and rank and hope for the best.
From my experience in the residency and fellowship application process there is so many dishonest people out there.
Dont hang your hopes on what people tell you

  Absolutely you shouldn't ask the program about your ranking! but you may ask general questions.
it is the same as what you are looking for in the candidates?

Anyhow, it depends on from program to another!

I agree most people are dishonest about ranking, either from the faculty members or applicants!

  Don't ask them about their process...you can just show interest and tell them you are ranking them high due to various reasons
