I am starting to freak out now. I was interviewed by a medical school professor for a letter of rec two weeks ago. Just for your info, he also happens to be in the admission committee of a top school. He wanted to know what my goal in medicine was, and I told him I would like to open my own family clinic in a RURAL area of California in the future? He asked, "Where?" I said, "Lake Elsinore and Mission Viejo - my friends live there- or Santa Barbara and Thousand Oaks Area." Today, my friend told me those areas are actually more like suburbs, not rural. Also, he mentioned that rural would be more like places in Nebraska or Kansas. Oh great! Did I shoot myself on the foot?
