    Someone told me that the U of Iowa (or was it Idaho?) took care of his travel expenses when he went to interview with them. He was from another state.
    Anyone else hear about things like that? Which other schools also do that?

    I went out to Iowa in January and they reimbursed $150 of the costs I incurred.

    -- hotel $ 98
    -- flight $ 280
    -- rent-a-car $ 50
    -- misc $ 30

    Northwestern's is. They're cool. I definitely think that all schools should pay for re-visits (even if they have to raise tuition by like $200 or whatever each person). It just makes the applicant feel so much nicer about the school...

    UMich offered to pay up to $400 for a flight out to interview there, but I don't think it is standard for med schools (unless maybe it MD/PhD) to compensate you for expenses related to interview travel.

I was under the impression that you were straight MD.

    Anyways, I'm just MD, but I didn't get any such offer... <img border="0" title="" alt="[Frown]" src="frown.gif" />

    Unless I'm mistaken, Jessica is regular MD. She's just some kind of super-applicant. Schools just love her... <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" /> I'm very jealous. :rolleyes:

    I would definitely apply to a school that reimbursted me for travel expenses! <img border="0" title="" alt="[Eek!]" src="eek.gif" />
