Absolutely. Definitely not criteria for selecting an away. Just was curious about this in the case of potential late season rotations. Thanks for the info.

anyone know if there's a strong preference for a program wanting a LOR for an away rotation in terms of whether it comes from dean vs non-ortho vs ortho vs gen surg docs? I don't really want to ask anyone in my department so early... feel that it could rub them the wrong way to ask for a letter before even rotating, even though it won't be the same as a letter I'd be asking for to submit to residency programs.

Duke asks for an LOR to rotate. Totally retarded but that's the only one I came across. It just needed to be from any ortho attending.

LoR for an away = a check box. Its just to weed out non-serious people.

It has nothing to do with seriousness. That individual was obviously serious enough to seek out the program. But expecting a 3rd yr to ask for a letter in March and then ask that person again in July is stupid at best, for multiple reasons. And what if you haven't done a home sub-I yet?
