Question Where else did you apply!

MY friends has had a few interviews. It seems that it is not very uncommon for them to ask you questions like: Where else do you have interviews? What other programs did you apply to? What other specialties did you apply to?

I don't know how to answer this question, should I lie and risk that they might find out? or should I be honest?

I applied to IM (50 programs) Pediatrics (50 programs) and Family medicine (10 programs).. I have 3 Pediatrics interviews I think because I am a Pediatric resident in my country...

Programs are NOT ALLOWED to ask you where else did you apply. That's a violation of the NRMP rules.

Programs are aware of this rule and they usually do not ask such questions.

However, if ever, they ask you. Just say that you applied to a handful of programs in a specific region and only in one specialty.

Never ever tell them that you applied to other specialties.
