    Rochester, NY, that is. Any suggestions from all you well-travelled interviewees?

    It's quite a beautiful drive if you're up for it.

    Train, get off on Essex Junction and it's about a 10 minute cab ride to Burlington.


    Good Luck
    It's a great school and people are very nice

    OK, guys, I seriously need help! I have a non-refundable ticket to Rochester that gets me in on 2/27 for a 2/28 interview. Unfortunately, my Vermont interview, which earlier this afternoon I was ecstatic to be able to reschedule from 2/28 to 2/26, necessitates changing my reservation which will cost me $100 right off the bat! And the ticket wasn't that cheap to begin with (they never are from Alaska). I can't change the destination so I have to find some way to get to Vermont. Amtrak does not appear to be the answer, or if it is, I can't figure it out from their site. Greyhound takes 10-12 hours! JetBlue would be perfect (and cheap!) but their last departure time is 1/2 hour before the Anchorage flights arrive. I really don't want to arrive a whole day earlier. I'm too young (21) to rent a car. I need some very specific suggestions.

    Never mind, guys. I now love Northwest!!! <img src="graemlins/lovey.gif" border="0" alt="[Lovey]" />
    They wouldn't let me change my ticket over the phone, so I had to drive to the airport, where a really nice guy let me change the ticket to an open jaw (fly into Burlington, VT, fly out of Rochester, NY) with no change fee and an only slightly higher fare. Only catch is I have to stay over a Saturday, but since I have a friend in NYC who I can pop down to see on JetBlue, I'm not too upset about that. :D
