      Jefferson has this program for people wanting to go into rural family practice in PA. i thought, great, that's my goal exactly. then I see the application requirements: three LOR from community leaders in my home county. WTF? OK, first of all, haven't lived there ina few years. Second of all, I wasn't connected with ANY "community leaders". Who is? I've got three prof LORs since i went to school there. bah. oh well...
