Does anybody have any experience with externships at these programs?

Parkland
Houston
San Antonio
Jacksonville
Gainesville
Mayo
Nebraska
UNC

I know there is some debate on whether to extern at places you are actually interested in versus those that will give you a stellar experience and give you something to talk about on interviews. What do you think?

UCLA - Externship blows, they won't let you touch anything the whole time you're there
Parkland - If you're interested make sure you get on it quick, they fill out during the summer months

setting the ones in Texas and Florida aside, applicants go to the other ones if they wanna match there. UCLA interviews ( if qualified !) twice! once for OMFS once for medical school.

Mayo sends its students to somewhere else for trauma ( jax i think)

UMDNJ is supposedly good, according to my friend who goes to a d-school in NYC

UNC is generous in its invites to ppl who externed there, good luck !

According to Mayo's website, they currently have no off-site rotations.

Not much. Everything I know is based on their website and the review on the SDN thread.
