Program Directors Lie to PD on day of IV

Hi we all agree that to lie to PD is really bad idea.but there are a lot of issues which are kinda confusing eg if your step score are low then you going to applying for say two programs eg IM and FM
Now PDs are old school and what if they ask that did you apply for another program? ---.YES/NO?
if yes then why in which way to explain ?
if no then they may figure in out due to connections or whatever..
on other hand a lot of PD ask why this program?? so how to tell that although i applied for IM too but i am really interested in FM sir..

This is a post from Dr. Conrad Fischer's blog. It's from 2010, but I think you'll find it useful, especially the part when he mentions about the feared question of applying to two specialties.

Hope this helps.
