    VCU says they're closing tomorrow for the holidays. Is this true for most schools?

    "Closed" is kind of a misnomer. Most schools don't do interviews over the Christmas break. However, I would bet that the admissions offices are still open, although I know a lot of our administrative people are taking vacation time over the next couple of weeks. OSU interviewed today for the last time until after the first of the year. Christmas break officially started after Friday for the students.

    Some schools feel that their schools are best appreciated when students (particularly M1 and M2 students) are around and can give tours/answer questions, etc. So, as long as the students are on break, the interview season in on hiatus. Meanwhile, there being no interviews and back to back three day weekends, many academics just take the intervening days off and enjoy a week-plus of holiday/vacation.

    Happy Holidays!
