    I just got a "letter of intent" for an offer from a transitional year program, but it is not in the same city where my anesthesia program is. If I sign this "letter of intent", can I change my mind if another TY program offers me a position tomorrow?

    Thanks for your advices!

    does it look like a legal contract? you mention that you have to sign it... it may be binding in that case.

    That SOUNDS binding. Can you hold onto it so you can contact/wait on programs tomorrow? Or do you have to respond immediatly? First come first served?
