Randon T. Hall
Hi! I am Randon and I am originally from Southern New Jersey not to be
confused with the more abrasive Northern part of the state. I went to
college at Rutgers Univeristy in New Brunswick, which at the time had
the worst ranked division one football team in the country. I am
currently a fourth year medical student at Vanderbilt University in
Nashville and after four years I am just getting used to living in the
South. I will also be starting my residency in pediatrics this
upcoming summer. Anyway, I really hope you all enjoy the site,
because I know it will be an invaluable resource to anyone, especially
medial students, traveling or interviewing around the country. As
always if you have any new ideas, corrections or suggestions we would
love to know about them.
Randon's favorite budget travel tip:
Honestly, I think without a doubt the single best way to save money on traveling is to utilize public transportation when going to and from the airport. Even if you are unaccustomed to this type of transportation or sense you are going to be a little inconvenienced, it is well worth the extra effort. Just use the links and phone numbers we have provided and you are sure to get the hang of it.
Hello! I am from Dayton Ohio. While in medical school at Vanderbilt, Randon and I created this website after we started the residency interview process
and realized how expensive it can be. I am at the tail end of neurosurgery residency at Cleveland Clinic and hope it still helps pre-medical and medical students interviewing throughout the country.
There are more options than a $50 taxi from the airport!
I look forward to the continued suggestions and features we plan on creating.
Ben's favorite budget travel tip:
Well, check our website for information about the city to which you're traveling.
I use it for my own travel outside of interviewing and still surprise myself.
Otherwise, make sure you bring a bag of quarters on your trips to pay for the buses or trains.
