    When you get an interview from a medical school, do you have to pay for the travel expenses, or does the school pick up the tab?

    No Sir-ee-bob, you have to dig DEEP into your pockets for everything! At 2 of 3 schools I've been, we had to pay for parking as well. This stuff is expensive; you have to plan for this stuff ahead of the game--save money or get a loan.

    The medical school interview process is definitely geared for those with money (or those that can get money). Don't forget about the cost of some nice clothes, dry-cleaning that suit, a new haircut, etc. And if you live in a remote area without a medical school (like Fairbanks, Alaska) the minimum airfare just to get out of the state is about $500. It would be very difficult for a poor person from Fairbanks, Alaska (and I won't even discuss the more remote village in which it costs $500 just to get to Fairbanks) to interiew for medical schools.
