SO, I am an ignorant New Englander who is scheduled to interview at Creighton in Omaha, NE. I'm not proud to admit this, but I had to google Omaha to find out where it was when I got my invite. I haven't really dealt with being more than 100 miles away from the ocean for more than a week in my whole life. The midwest has just been the patchwork of squares outside the plane window on the way to California where corn comes from. Being from the Boston area, I've been trained to not look people in the eye on the subway, not really be friendly or even polite to strangers and to drive like a maniac where ever I am going. What is Omaha like? Are the people like the stereotypical super-friendly midwesterners? Are there seafood resturaunts? What do people do there? Am I going to piss off an interviewer if I dont call him/her by sir/ma'am? Are there any strange mid-western rituals that I should be aware of? Will I be mocked if I mistakenly ask where the bubbler is or errantly drop an r from an occasional word? I know that the mid-west is supposed to be friendly, but I'm actually pretty nervous about going there...any help/advice is much appreciated.
