Members don't see this ad.
I just got back from my ECU interview, and I loved it. And for those of you keeping score...

I wore a skirt suit (only b/c my pant suit needs to be altered).
I wore my hair up, and went easy on the jewlery.
I handwrote my secondary.
I stapled my photograph.
I brought in a list of typed questions.
I will be mailing my handwritten thank-you notes tomorrow.

I think that covers it...:laugh:

Now that's a great post. :D

So, did you have a purse? Or did you take a notebook? What about shoes? How high were your heels? ;)

I'm disappointed, DW... I thought you did your secondaries in invisible ink!!!

But I do think that the chippendales get up will make an impression at your Cornell interview...;) :D

I think the interviewers at Cornell actually keep dollar bills on hand for such an event...or so I've heard... ;)

1-inch heels (which was good b/c the elevators were being repaired and I was climbing LOTS of stairs-- 4th floor admissions office, had an interview on the 8th floor...)
-purse AND portfolio-- purse was large enough to put portfolio in, thus freeing up my hands at lunch
-photo was neither "passport" nor "wallet" size exactly-- it was a posed picture my mom took of me on our deck that i cut to fit.

Anything else? I really think that the purse/portfolio combination really impressed my interviewers...;)

Eastern Carolina University... It's in Greenville, NC, and is the #1 med school for family practice. It ranks pretty high in primary care...
