Mine are. OCS also made that sound like that was the common arrangement. The only thing I need to handle are expenses to and from the airport and extra meals, but those are reimbursed as well, and won't be too much.

V50 callback.  (Thank God)  What, if anything, should I do to prepare?  I think the interview went well because I threw nervousness to the wind and bantered.

*In clinical studies, Matthies was well tolerated, but women who are pregnant, nursing or might become pregnant should not take or handle Matthies due to a rare, but serious side effect called him having to make child support payments.

Found out my callbacks are "fake" and am now getting rejections from lower V100s.  All my interviews have been going terribly.

Seriously considering dropping out. 
At least I can f-ing think.

Also, that sucks.  I'm sorry :-\

Some places call back WAY more people than they're interested in.

The rumor this year is that some places are calling people back but have already decided on rejections before you even walk in the door.  The idea is to drum up interest, get people telling other students how nice their callback was, get people to reapply after doing clerkships, etc.

At least for one of my callbacks I'm pretty sure that's what they're doing.  My grades make me woefully unqualified but they know I really want to wind up in their city. 

The other CB is from a place that's doing so horribly I don't even know why they're hiring, and last year gave out 1 offer for every 5 callbacks they offered.

Given the state of public interest hiring right now I think it's fair to say at this point that my situation is hopeless.
At least I can f-ing think.

Thank you for reminding me why I switched to reading art forums like wet canvas.  (Well, that, and some XOXO jerk had it in for me.)
