Hey everyone,

I was wondering if anyone else is applying to a backup specialty or just something else that they are interested in (assume that most don't have a to-die-for specialty). How does that affect interviewing/ranking? Do institutions have an established way of knowing if someone applied to 2 things? This seems a little "big brother-esque." However, I understand if an ophtho attending knows for example a rads or anesthesia attending and both happen to mention your name, things could get dicey (more likely possible situation but still low prob). Suggestions from people who have already done this and experienced an unfavorable result are appreciated and *please* name the institution. Thanks for the advice.
