    Clerkships cost facilities money and school's are paying less (if any) reimbursement to the rotation sites. It's possible this is affecting my rotations next year leading to less top choices. Has anyone else heard the same at their school?

    Hah! Our dean had a big scandal here a couple years back when they raised tuition something like $2500 between semesters. This year he was forced to "promise" not to raise tuition in the middle of the year.

    We'll see if that holds.
