"How your body does not adjust to jet lag as fast as you hope. I came in from the west coast and could not eat the tour lunch (it was like 9:00am for me). West coasters bring a snack - you will be starving to death at 3:00pm" Report Response

What are your general comments?

" I checked in at 11:00am with 10 other students, but eveyone else had come and gone to two interviews by the time I got to my one long interview (3:00 pm). Thanks to everybody else who sat around and chatted - you guys made it bearable. Because our group was large some of us only had one longer interview --> mine was with an associate dean of admissions - she was super nice but had sort of a flat affect --- hard to gauge what she thought of me sometimes. Others had 2 interviews that were much shorter. Chill out - talk to the other interviewees --> you are going to have to wait." Report Response
