  I was told by family to go to edible arrangements and send several small "basic" gift basket to programs. I do not have a mailing address to several NY hospitals so I drove over the weekened and dropped them off at several of the EDs CARE OF the reidency program

  @scaredkinda : according to your post you have already dropped off the "baked cookies", so why are you now questioning that? Are you going back to the NY programs and ask for the cookies back if we say it was a bad idea - LOL.

  @scaredkinda Go and tell them you "dropped it off by mistake" before they scrape you off the ROL.

  - most of us would not do that.
- I think you were done with your exams and are in transition to join hospital work/systems. i think by doing that, you might have shared your happiness/feeling of relief of getting done with exams with hospital systems you are going to join. So it is not a huge deal either. Take care...DOC.

  I wouldnt send any gifts. I asked people about this on the job who said it may be seen as bribery. Also, on one interview, the PD and PC were talking about one applicant who sent chocolates and/or roses to the office-they thought it was kinda weird and inappropriate
