A doctor is still a doctor. I doubt it would hold someone back during the carms process.

I just figure why even bother with that at all since I have another offer, but I understand not everyone has that option. Many carms places I saw have less than 3 spots, so why would anyone willingly put a label on their forehead saying "potential lottery" that could affect their limited chances if they don't have to
