Matt Winterton (Penn Med '15) and I are conducting a small study trying to get a sense of the cost of away rotations for ortho applicants. Would you consider filling out this brief survey?


(it's pretty quick: where'd you go and what did you spend?)

Thanks

Most were about $1,000 for me. Plan more if you're going to New York, Chicago, San Francisco

There are always three speeches, for every one you actually gave. The one you practiced, the one you gave, and the one you wish you gave.

Was that only for room/board? Seems possibly reasonable for a small city, but subletting for a month in any big city will run you about 1k alone, not including food/expenses/travel.

I scanned craigslist and school sublet websites for cheap places to rent. I usually found spots for $500/month. That was Boston, Philly, Providence (Brown offered housing on campus for $500). Not always the nicest apartments, but for a month spent mostly at the hospital I was just looking for something walkable/bike-able that had a bed
