Question Interview Cancellation

Dear friends,

I have 2 interviews scheduled for Dec5 and 6th in NY but don't want to attend. So I will probably cancel them.

My question is: Does that affect my profile for the matching? I have got 10 interviews that I will attend.

Is this a common procedure to do?
How many days in advance do I have to call them?

Happy thanksgiving

That's absolutely normal and there's no problem at all.

To be ethical and courteous and professional. Cancel them as early as possible. Send the email now.

It won't affect your profile at all.

I agree with Sabio, although in my opinion I would attend any possible interview if I was financially fit.
