Compelling Reasons to Hire Interns

"I'd like to apply to your hospital... because I'm doing research for my new role on 'All Saints'"
"I want to marry a doctor and become a housewife and I figured your doctors make the most money. Say, are you single?"
"Surgery is the closest thing to 'Scrubs', and I think it makes a very fetching fashion statement"
"I aspire to pork nurses and your hospital offers many professional opportunities for advancement in that area"
"I really like 'House', and your hospital reminds me of that show"
"I think your hospital lanyard adds a certain... je ne sais quoi!"
Some of these statements were things that I really should have said at that farce of an Auckland University med school interview.

Oh, the irony of hindsight. The pain.
