    I might be there next Thursday also. Not too sure yet. I'm a little skeptical about the pbl approach but I guess I'll just have to see for myself.

    I'm a little confused on the format of the interview and maybe someone can shed some light. I just received my interview/learning session interview. On the itenerary it states that from 9-12pm there are optional interviews that we should schedule ahead of time! I've never heard of an optional interview - weird! And if the interviews are optional then when do we get evaluated. Were all of the interview formats like this? If anybody could shed some light on this I would be very greatful.

    when i interviewed at USC, the second day was only an opportunity to observe a PBL session, it was not mandatory for the interviewing students.
    The PBL sessions that week were canceled for some reason, so I did not go and observe.
    Also, the individual interview with a faculty was only mandatory for second-time applicant to USC.
    Firt time applicant can also request an individual interview with a faculty, but the dates were not available for about a month later, which i thought would totally delay my application, so I opted not to do it. And the administrators also did not recommend it for first time applicants for whatever reason.
    anyhow, good luck on your interview.

    Thank you so much for clearing this up for me! I was so confused about this two day interview thing. Your input was much appreciated. :D
