    I brought my luggage to my interview. They understand if you have flights to catch or whatever the reason.

    No it's not as long as it's not a lot of stuff. They have a small closet for coats, and I am sure that if need-be you can put a small bag in there.

    Best of luck... it was a really great interview day :)

    I had gotten into the habit of getting late checkouts (for 2 PM, for free if available) so that I didn't have to worry about cleaning up or changing out of my suit afterwards in some random bathroom ;)

    I really loved the feeling of going on interviews at medical schools. It might sound kind of lame but I really enjoyed feeling like a professional.

    I brought my luggage to all my interviews, and lots of other interviewees did too. Admissions will just have you put your luggage in a corner till you're done. Not a problem at all.

    Same here man. I honestly loved travelling all over the states for interviews. Felt a little bit like Carmen Sandiego :laugh:

    Bringing luggage is fine. Just be careful, some med students have been known to snoop through bags while the group is taking the campus tour. I myself have at least 5 pairs of panties. :thumbup:

    I bought luggage to all my interviews, except NYCOM since I live about an hour away. Although I did bring my ice skates and a change of clothes for after my interview ended, but I left that in my car. But the schools know you had to travel, so they'll provide a place to stash your stuff. I never went back to the hotel because I was worried for time, most of my interviews ended around 3 or 4, and I had to get to the airport and didn't want to stop, so I just took my stuff and changed at the school or airport, depending.

    During my interviews, I would check out of my hotel and then ask the front desk if I could keep my bags in a secure place. They would usually take them for me and then when I went back to the hotel after the interview (to catch the shuttle) I would pick my bags up and head to the airport. It worked out well. Many others did the same
