I want to go into ortho. I'm thinking that if the residency people know I have a serious girlfriend, they may think that surgery is #2 in my life and the girl is #1. Should I say I'm single so it's easier for them to believe that orthopedic surgery is the most important thing in life to me???? Maybe they're looking for young, cool bachelors who aren't tied down like a whipped bitch. Of course it's possible to get caught in a lie!!! What do you guys think, especially those of you in the ortho field????????
