    If you apply to several aways and are accepted to multiple spots does it leave a bad taste in the programs mouth if you cancel the away after you have it scheduled? Anyone have any experience with this?

    I cancelled an away rotation and later received an interview at the same place. I think if you let the program know as early as possible (so they can fill the spot) and are polite about it, they will not hold it against you.

    i think more important that if you cancel is how you do it. do it early, graciously and not overly apologetically. doubt it will come back to haunt you.

    btw Lady in rad: like the screenname.
