    assuming all my clinicals are on the east coast is it advisable to drive my car there to use as transportation? also, are there any states that require registration? thanks

    if you're doing rotations in NYC don't bring a car. If you're in NJ a car is a must. You don't need to change anything, if you don't want to. Keep your cali plates and license, you're only there for a year.

    --Its a great drive from the best coast. i did it in 40 some hrs. I recommend it if youve never done it or have a couple days to burn.. Also. I wouldnt be caught without my car. Unless you live in a area that has absolutely no parking or everything you need is within a short walk..bring it cause nothing is worse than being bound to public transit unless you want to spend needless hours on a bus or subway..

    --Also as a student I am with the understanding that you do not have to change the plates over. this saves me a ton in fees, inspection and insurance. The only down side is when you get a camera ticket in some strange location they send the ticket back to your registered address.

    keeping in mind i started rotations in Catonsville, Maryland and am now in the Mt Vernon/ Sound Shore realm... Your question can be better answered when you find out exactly which hospital you are going to.
