    1. Attending Physician
      You should receive several interviews from your list. You could add these schools:
      Rochester
      Cincinnati
      Hofstra
      Einstein
      Ohio State
      Mayo (both schools)
      Remove schools such as Temple, George Washington and Wayne State since they will "yield protect".
