Angry Why to interview AMGs if they fill with IMGs!

Sometimes I just wonder why do they interview AMGs if they gonna fill up with IMG prematches!

Two of my friends noticed that in NRMP, one of them is Cleveland Clinic Florida.

This is really ridiculous

Yeah, I've heard about Cleveland Florida, that really sucks.

I guess they must have got really super IMGs, like with PHDs and stuff

Most of those IMGs are extremely qualified, so I guess they are just thinking what's better for their program.
In the wise words of Thumper:
