I was wondering what you guys thought about mentioning involvement with the local chapter of your political party as an extracurricular on med school applications. Is it just inviting combative interviews? I know there's the potential for any interview to become difficult if certain social and political topics come up and the interviewer and interviewee strongly disagree. If controversial issues did come up, I'd say what I believed, of course. What else can you do? Still, I'm wondering if giving a school your political affiliation pre interview is just asking for trouble. What do you think?
