I matched through the AOA match as a graduate. Since I am not on rotations, and my husband's job is from home, we can move whenever we want. We took advantage of the buyer's market, and bought a house this weekend in the city where I will start residency. We are moving next month. This works best for us because we rent, so we don't have to wait for our house to sell. We are not on a lease - and can move with 30 days notice. Our rental house has constant problems and costs a fortune to heat, plus is not in the safest area. It will benefit my family to move as soon as possible, so we did. I do not expect any extra hospitality, I'm not going to try to force socialization on anyone before they are expecting to have to do so. We just want time to settle in and do any home improvements needed before I start internship year. We are lucky enough to have the time to do so. My new program seemed a little weirded out that we were moving so early, almost like it was a negative thing. I'm a little confused. Can anyone think of reasons why moving early would be a bad thing?
