      Do students on SDN ever offer to host each other during medical school interviews? I know the expenses of traveling for interviews pile up quickly.

      I am more than happy to host students interviewing at Duke and UNC this season. You'd have a private room and bathroom. I can pickup from RDU airport.

      Please don't hesitate to shoot me a PM if you need a place to say in the greater Raleigh-Durham area during interview season. If I like you, I'll tell you where the best empanadas in town are. :D

        I know it's school-dependent, but most schools should have a student hosting program as well. Nothing like being able to pick a current student's brain and have a place to crash for free the night before your interview.

          Yeah, I hosted through my school's student host program.

          Definitely see if that exists if you are interested in hosting. It's actually pretty fun, and since I stayed at hosts' houses while interviewing, I thought I would repay the favor.

          Feel free to advertise on SDN too of course, but if you are really interested, you may have more luck at your school.

            I stayed with an awesome SDN member at my Case interview. :D We'd talked on Facebook a ton beforehand. She's totally cool. And it was great to have someone who knew the city and the school better than I did. Made the interview experience much better.

Fancy queen air mattress and also a futon (in case family/friends are coming with you) in a somewhat private backroom.
