    I don't know if ya'll knew about this but pre-meds get an airline discount for interviews. Here's the email I got from my advisor:

    The NAAHP (National Association of Advisors for the Health Professions)
    has a contract with American Airlines for reduced air fares for
    interview trips. Students will receive 5% off of the lowest available
    fares. The access phone numbers and index number follow:

    NAAHP Official Health Professions Travel Desk: 800-882-6848. When
    students
    call this number they can book American or the agent will search for
    lowest
    fares on all carriers.

    American Airlines Direct: 800-433-1790. The index number when calling
    American is 14655. In both cases, payment is by credit card only.

    How much a deal this is compared to what you might be able to find
    on-line with other airlines is not clear.

    Wow, how generous of them an entire 5%!Booking on the internet for most airlines gives you a bigger discount. They could at least make an effort to get us a bigger discount. Flights can get quite expensive with lots of interviews.

    If you buy your ticket more than 2 weeks in advance, it should only be about $60 on southwest depending on availability.
