  1. Great episode!

    While a socially distanced interview season is undeniably full of challenges and disadvantages, one possible silver lining is the huge potential savings from traveling and lodging expenses.

    On a related note, and I’m incredibly empathetic to the financial strains of medical school, but one might consider making a small investment into optimizing their interview environment (whether that be new headphones, a router, high speed internet, etc.) realizing that it is still likely a significant cost savings over the travel that would have otherwise been required.

    Just a slightly different perspective.
