I've seen mentioned a few places that there can be a strong geographic bias in EM residency interviews, e.g. if I'm at a med school on the east coast, programs on the west coast won't even bother interviewing me unless I've done an away there. How much truth is there to that? I'm a non-trad, have lived all over, and have no particular ties to where I'm currently in school. I like new places, and would ideally like to end up somewhere I haven't lived before for residency. Would I need to do multiple aways to open up various parts of the country? (As much as I love EM, I'd rather spend 4th yr doing stuff I won't be doing for the rest of my career, rather than doing 3 or 4 EM sub-Is. And I already have a soul-crushing mountain of debt, so the idea of multiple aways is also less appealing from a cost standpoint.) I'd appreciate any insight!
