Not if asymptotics themselves don't apply, though it's hard to say
here. The real problem is that you have a lot of IVs for your sample

-rologit- is for responses that are ranked. It fits the Plackett-Luce
model. This is used when a respondent has multiple objects and ranks
them, and would thereby be giving multiple responses. So if each
respondent were to be asked "what medical speciality do you intend to
study for? rank order them" then yes -rologit- is more applicable.
