    Guys
    I Just Got An Invite From Michigan State University For An Interview. I Am A California Resident And Would Love To Stay Here In Cali. Infortunately, The Only Cali Invite I Have Gotten So Far Is From Usc For 1/28. My Thing Is, Should I Settle For An Early January Interview From Msu Or Push It For Later. By The Way, I Am An August Mcat Taker

    I don't have my MSAR handy, but if the school does rolling admissions, take the EARLIEST interview you can get. Absolutely. No questions.

    When I See Posts Like This, I Always Think: I Hope This Infortunate Person Proofread Their Personal Statement To Death. I Have An MA In English And I Was Finding Typos In The Thing For Weeks After I Thought It Was Done!

    Also, Learning ESL Is Very Hard, Native Grammar And Usage Are Almost Impossible For Adults To Learn Perfectly, And For Making Fun Of These People, We Are All Going To Hell. [cap]:([/cap]

    Haha, you guys realize when a poster types in all capital letters, this is the protective forum filter that pops up. It just lower cases all the letters after the first letter of each word, so the message wont be so SHOUTY and LOUD and ANGRY SOUNDING!

    ...Try it!

    Ok I Gotta Test To See If Turkeyman's Theory Is Correct. I Am Typing This In Allcaps, So If The First Letter Of Every Word Is Capitalized, And The Rest Looks Normal, Then We Have Proof That This Magical "filter" Of Which He Speaks Is True. Man... I Just Gotta Try Everything.

    Take the out of state interview...I would actually try to schedule it BEFORE USC, because you can get good practice out of the experience (especially if you haven't interviewed elsewhere). You want to be at the top of your game. Good luck!
