    Colleen, I never see a dietitian say they got an internship at the university they attended. Do universities not like to pick their old students? Or do former students usually like to go somewhere else for their internship? Thanks 🙂

      Hi Angel,
      Unlike universities that favor students from the same state that the student lives in, most internships like to have diversity in their interns. Internships like to have interns from other states. The internship might choose a couple from the undergraduate class, but most will be from other schools/states. Try applying for your school’s internship, but also make sure to apply for internships in other states. The goal is to choose an internship that will be the best FIT for you and your past experiences. Choosing and internship based off of location is usually ideal budget wise, but your chances of getting an internship that is out of state AND fits your goals/experiences will most likely be higher. Consider a distance internship too…that way you can do it in your own geographical area, if money is a concern (which for most of us it is!). Hope this helps!!
