Hey man i wanted to apply to but the only thing holding me back is the $1000 application fee. its non refundable.
Can anyone tell me what the chances of rejection are in which case the money would be wasted?

You shud apply 8-9 months in advance
As usama said application fee is 1000$ but the coordinator can refund it if your application isn't processed at all.like few of my known to ppl applied ,there were no slots vacant so the coordinator didnt process the aoolication n returned the money

Thanks for replying man. The thing is, even if there are slots available, its still a gamble and pretty scary cuz its a thousand bucks so i dont know man it keeps holding me back.
Anyways, what specialty did you get the elective in and for how many weeks and how much is the cost for the elective??
