Hey guys, what's a good source to get up-to-date with topics such as health care policy, medical ethics, and other current events?

Honestly, in my interview experience (n=1) I was asked very little about current events. Maybe two or three times in 20+ interviews. And all three were about access/obamacare. This was in 2014-2015, by the way. You'll be better for doing the research and forming your opinions, but don't neglect doing research on the individual schools that interview you as well.

I didn't mean for that to be boastful, only to lend credence to what I was saying. To clarify, mid-teens interview days attended, with 25-30 actual interviews with different people because most schools have two, some have three (student and faculty, etc) interviews for you at the interview day.

I thought you meant you interviewed at 20+ schools. Mid teens is still pretty redic.

Yeah, there are people that do. There are people who don't worry about the finances of it, or they don't get an acceptance mid-cycle and that makes them have to keep going around.
