    Who's with me?! :)

    I'm so excited, it's my first time to go. I will be manning (or womanning) our booth much of the time, but I hope I can sneak off to a few presentations.

    I'm hearing hints that I will be there - again.

    I had a reasonably fun time last year. It's hot outside and the food was pretty bad. Best bring some of your own.

    They are also sending practice opportunities that you might want to investigate as you near graduation.

    The event is focused on med students, but recruiters (for jobs AFTER residency) have booths there also.

    The goal of most recruiters is just to make some contacts and pick up some valid email addresses. It's a very competitive market these days, so they're looking for every angle they can find. Lots of students hang around those booths, too, mostly because it's fun to think about what things will be like after going through all the work of medical training.

    For those of you who have attended the NC before, is there a dress code? Do I need to bring dress shirts/ties/slacks, etc?
