I am a 30-something nontrad applying in 2009 to med school for 2010 admission. I am planning on applying to only one school, Pitt, which is located within commuting distance to my house. Professionally, I think Pitt is a great school with extensive research and clinical opportunities. Personally, I have lived and worked my whole life in the Pittsburgh area and I am comfortable here, have family in the area, and it would be a major pain to have to sell my house and move, especially since I would lose money in the poor housing market right now. Let's face it, when you are older it is just not that easy to relocate. Obviously, on applications and at an interview I am going to emphasize the good fit for me as a student and not the more personal issues. I know Pitt is a really good school and this is a little crazy when the conventional wisdom is that you should apply to a minimum of 10 schools. As a side note, I believe that my UG GPA and my work and research experience in healthcare will make me competitive here but realize there are no guarantees when it comes to med school acceptances. Anyway, my question boils down to the fact that I might well be asked if I get an interview at Pitt where else I applied. If I say that I was so smitten with Pitt that it was my only application will they summarily reject me on the basis that I am clearly nuts? Should I mention that fact that Pitt is my first and only choice on my personal statement or will that be perceived as crazy, too?
