    I know that when traveling for residency interviews the AMA will hook us up with car rentals and flights, but how about hotels? I looked on their site and couldn't find anything out about hotel hook ups. Anybody know one know about this?

    All of that information is available for anyone to see on their website as well. (Go to "4th year resources".) I think you're okay.

    I was able to find awesome hotel deals using Priceline. Anyway, I found the AMSA discount to not be any better than rates I could find in a basic search online. I highly recommend using Priceline if at all possible.

    I second that! I've gotten a few amazing hotel finds for cheap (3 stars for less than $65 in a major city) there.

    AAA also has discounts. They'll also pull your car (or the rental) out of a snow bank, etc. I got it for my fourth year because I was driving around the country for different rotations. Well worth the $. (No, I am not a AAA agent.)
