OK - so, I finally broke down a couple of weeks ago and called the "real" Dr House in New York to see what it would take to get in to see him. I knew from everything I'd read about it, that he was definitely un-traditional.
How un-traditional? VERY...
His requirement is that you have to write him an essay.
Yes, an essay.
Odd? Yes... but part of the reason I want to go see him is because he doesn't conform to the standards. So, I've worked on this essay off and on for a couple of weeks. It's printed & off in the mail today.
Now to wait and see.
