    The twist would be what happened to my knee when I slipped on ice Sunday night. I spent all day yesterday in the ER and have a bad sprain of my knee and am on Crutches.

    So here's the deal. I was all excited that I have my first interview next wednesday, now this happens. My biggest concern is that last time I interviewed at this school my interviews were so far apart that they were practically in different time zones and I only had a couple of minutes to get there. This school also does some off-site interviews. Should I call the addmissions office and tell them what happened and see if they can make my interviews close together or give me extra time to get from one to the other?

    Any advice? <img src="graemlins/pity.gif" border="0" alt="[Pity]" />

    It certainly would not hurt to tell them about your knee problem--most likely, they have not yet scheduled the interviews. I think as long as you let them know in advance, that it will be OK. The worst they can do is tell you that you will have plenty of time to get from one interview to the other!

    At my interview last Friday, one of my fellow applicants had just done some severe damage to his knee (he was getting an MRI the next day to see the extent of the damage). Luckily, his interviews were both scheduled on-campus and several hours apart. I do not know if he called to forewarn them about his condition, but the admissions office seemed very concerned for him and accomodating.

    Good luck!

    Sorry to hear about your situation. Admissions offices should make arrangements for you, I'm sure. Just call them and let them know what happened, you obviously can't pass it off and act like nothing happened and walk into interview day on crutches. Good luck!
