    I am already tapped out and I have many more interviews to do.
    I have spent almost $2000 already. I am wondering how much everybody has spent so far. How much do you anticipate spending for this whole process. These holidays are going be very lean and mean.

    Dude, tell me about it. I think I'll be able to finish up at about $2000 for 10 anesthesia and 9 prelims, but only because of lucky scheduling and selling my soul to Priceline. I'll have to take out a residency loan to pay for apps and relocation fees (the programs I'm interested in don't help out with relocation :mad: ).

    No flights for me

    9 interviews so far

    estimate $400 for extra hotels/expenses
    estimate $800 for gas, and about 8000 miles driving.
    estimate $1000 for food/extras (worst part-cant plan meals very well)

    Could be worse.

    From someone who doesn't belong in the anesthesia forum (just carousing, avoiding Step 2 studying) be glad you guys don't have to pay for hotels as well. Try adding $100+/night x 15 interviews to the total price tag. This whole process is insane...

    you make time.

    umm.. you schedule some "light" rotations and then "schedule" days off from those.

    everyone has been there, and most people understand that it's your fourth year and interview season. i haven't had any problems just saying "i gotta go interview".
