Sometimes I think the schools should be a little bit more understanding of the circumstances of each individual. After all, most of us are still in school, or have recently graduated and barely making enough money to support ourselves. It is not like we are some movie star making millions of dollars a year and we can fly out to interviews whenever the schools desire. I really don't think it sounds arrongant to ask them if you could consolidate your visits. In my e-mails I did not say that I wanted to come on such and such date. I said something along the line, if the school would consider to give me an interview, can they do it on such and such date. I think depends a lot on how you phrase it. The schools should understand, and I think a lot of them do, that we are trying to save some money, that's all. Let's say that you have 10 interviews and you have to fly out to all of them, at 400/ interview it is about 4000 that you will be spending in addition to the 2000 that you've already spent on AMCAS and secondaries. I think it is a lot of money, and if you don't have that money in the bank and you have to take a loan or to put the charges on the credit card, than it is getting even more complicated. So I don't really think that the schools mind if you ask them politely if you could coordinate visits.
