I'll be there. Are you currently getting bombarded by mail from booth sponsors?

I was even mistakenly asked to be a peer reviewer for one of the lunch talks on REI!

Nope I haven't gotten any emails of the such. What events are you going to attend? Are you signed up for any of the student events?

I'll be there! There are 6 med students from Case coming this year.

And, yes, I've been getting mailboxes full of "come to our booth" postcards. My favorite was the day I got postcards from both an almond purveyor and a sexual wellbeing device booth. The options are endless!

I'm signed up/attending the following things.

Sunday 3-5: "Preparing your CV and Personal Statement", and "Finding the right Residency"
Sunday 7-10: Welcome Reception
Monday: 12-4 "OB-GYN as a Career: Residency training..." (possibly a 12-1 meeting for applying to subspecialties, if I can swing it)
Monday 5:30-7: Medical Student Reception
Monday 8-whenever: Unofficial med student meet and greet at Pat O'brien's in the french quarter.
Tuesday 11-3: Residency fair
Tuesday 12-1:15: Brown bag seminar on REI
Tuesday 3-5: Introductory skills workshop
Wednesday 12-2: Farewell Reception

Still up in the air for the "ball" that they are throwing one of the nights. I think it was like $100. Everything I signed up for was free, as was registration in general, except for the REI brown bag lunch. And of course I'm looking forward to the New Orleans night life!

Also, a friend of mine at Wake had to back out of the meeting, so I was hoping to find someone else to split the hotel room with. It's at the Hampton Inn Convention Center. PM if anyone is interested. I promise I'm a normal, non-messy person!

I just checked my mail box today (after I discovered that all my mail had been going to the wrong box at my apt) and I have TONS of postcards from the booths to be at the meeting.
