SDN Nation, Does anyone have any idea if withdrawing from a school burns any bridges or limits future opportunities at the respective schools? (e.g. research, residency) In my case, I withdrew from a school that really wanted me to attend (or so they told me) because I had previous work experience with the institution and knew a lot of the people. However, I am interested in doing a year of research at the school that I withdrew from. Do you think it would be hard to find a mentor/support because I chose to attend a different school that was financially a better deal?
