Im scheduling a lot of itnerviews that are a few hrs drive from each other on back to back days. I am hoping to finish interviewing by the early afternoon and to be able to make the pre-interview dinner at the next place that evening. On some Im even taking a few hr flight over time zones and hoping to at least make some of the pre-interview dinner. Are most people squeezing interviews together like this? Is it at all a big deal to miss pre-interview dinner at a few places? I know they are important, but I dont imagine missing it will really affect application all that much.
