    I've never heard of them fining you for it. However, they once tried to fine me for turning down an elective rotation that TL (previous coordinator) took it upon herself to ASSIGN to me without asking me. I had not even done an IM core so I would've been clueless doing the rotation. Ironically the site where they tried to assign me shut down a day after the elective began.

    Meh....in the end the dean said he would "waive" the fee "this time." I kindly informed him that there would be no penalty fee for turning down an ELECTIVE that I had neither requested nor was qualified to take at the time.That's not how it works. This particular dean no longer works for AUA as he was fired. Heh.

    But just to cover your butt you should email the AUA coordinator as well as the hospital coordinator today. There are so many students on a wait list there shouldn't be any problems filling the spot.
