    I know, I really want to go to school there. I cant wait!!!! Seems like it might be a competitive school to get into this year though with all the new facilities.

    I hear it takes about a week for the adcom to get back to you after the interview. Is this correct?

    i wouldn't bank on a week, but they are pretty fast. the portland interviewees interviewed on oct. 29 and 30 and heard on nov. 11. they email, too, which makes it all faster.

    Count on two weeks. I heard back from them in six days, but that was probably because Thanksgiving was bearing down on them.

    I stayed at the Heartland Inn when I was there. Not to shabby. Only $54 and they picked me up from the airport late at night and drove me to DMU early morning.

    Best of luck to you! :thumbup:

    Stay with a student host if you can!!! It totally made my experience and makes DMU an extremely hard act to follow!

    I stayed at the renaissance savory. It was great. If I had it to do again, I may have stayed with a student. Have a great time at the interview! See you there next year!

    I got that sheet from DMU saying that you can get a discount rate at renaissance savory for $55. I called them and they said the discount was $69. Anyone get a room for $55?

    news for you coming! it is snowing very hard and the roads are terrible. plan on leaving at least 15 minutes earlier than you would have. slow down and be safe. there are literally 30-40 accidents now.

    im in my hotel room now... i drove from iowa city to DM and passed 56 cars/semi trucks in the ditch. drove 40mph on the interstate all the way here! I made it alive though. Wonder if this is going to inhibit other prospective students from getting to the interview tomorrow?
