Do not forget that physicians will be reviewing your application; therefore it is probably not a good strategy to suggest that most physicians are incompetent and you are going to be the ideal doctor and will rescue our health care system. Also, be mindful of the fact that the people evaluating your application have many different backgrounds and credentials. For example, do not insult D.O. programs, as a D.O. may be one of your interviewers or sit on the committee deciding on your application.
