I just spent about 500 bucks that I don't really have (450 plane ticket, 50 hotel room) for an interview at a 'back-up' school. I don't really want to consider this school back-up and try to treat each itnerview like its the only one, but still. The thing is, they gave me an interview notice (at least I received it) 5 days before the interview!!!!!! they sent it out a week before the actual date, so I was royally screwed for the flights. Do you guys think its worth it? Everyone keeps telling me I am an idiot for going there, but I am not in yet anywhere. Is this REALLY an expensive interview? What are you guys spending per trip? Thanks. My flight is from California to a midwestern city, and the school is REALLY small. I guess my major question is--is it normal to spend so much per interview or am I smocking crack for doing this?
