It's not going to be possible to get useful opinions without explaining why you wouldn't want to attend your backup. Is it a matter of ranking, a geographical issue, etc? And isn't this sort of the point of a backup -- someplace you would attend if you didn't get in elsewhere? Some schools are harder to get into as reapplicants, so you may end up screwing yourself out of medical school unless you are a really strong candidate or plan to do something substantial to improve your resume.flako said:I'm thinking about declining that interview because this is my backup school. I interviewed at other schools that I would rather attend but did not get accepted, and I believe I have a better chance if I reapply again next year. Has anyone been in this situation? What should I do?
