Then I joked that if only he was in CCLCM and had given up his spot (so that people off the alternate list could get it). But, if he was in CCLCM, he would not give up his spot for financial reasons. The reason I am interested in CCLCM is because, primarily, of the excellent institution (Cleveland Clinic) and because it is research oriented. I really want to do research while practicing medicine. Plus, the whole reason of going to MD MSTP/MD PhD/MD MS (whatever) for the scholarship is foolish because you will eventually pay off the tuition (especially if you start practicing earlier).
But the short answer to your statement is no.
intense. I'm interested mostly because there is a delicious walleye grilled cheese sandwich available in the area.
