do you all think it's important to do a subI at your home institution? we're only allowed 2 and i'm pretty sure i don't want to stay at my home instituion. family and friends are elsewhere. someone told me it might seem fishy if i dont do a subI or get a rec letter from my home school.

I had zero letters from faculty at my home school. I had glowing letters from FM docs in community residency programs, community clinics, and a pediatrician at a community clinic. The glowing is what matters in FM, in my experience.
