Hi, I have some qs about some schools I am interviewing at soon, so I can determine flights:

For Vanderbilt - Do you just come for the interview and leave - I am scheduled for 2pm...should I be there earlier/when should I expect to leave?

WUSTL - Didn't give me an interview time, but just said breakfast at 7:30AM - Do I assume they will guide me from there for the whole day?/ When does it end?

Thanks guys.

No! For Vandy...you have to be there at 9. They have a full day scheduled (from 9 till 3 or 4).

For WashU, there are students who meet you for breakfast and they take you straight to the admissions office. You're done mid to late afternoon, depending on your interview schedule. I was done at about 4.

Vandy's day isn't exactly "full" though, there are a couple periods of inactivity where you have to find something to do.

I'm not too sure about reporting at 9AM. I also had a 2pm interview, and I was told to arrive right before 11am. Check into this.

I actually liked this. Gave me a chance to tour around the campus.

If you have an afternoon interview (which you do), you don't need to be there until 11 am.

I guess. It was just unique for the interviews I've been on, and I didn't enjoy it. But I work on campus so I just went back to work for a little while.

Yeah, it was somewhat nice since Vanderbilt's campus is sooo gorgeous..but I kind of would have liked a little more structure. I felt like they could have provided the applicants with a few more opportunities. Oh well.

I was spoiled by my undergrad, I think Vandy's campus doesn't quite stack up :(

It is a nice place, though. And it's nice that it's so small so that that I can walk over to Five Guys in under 10 minutes :D

Where did you do your undergrad? Duke? Apparently many consider Vandy's to be the prettiest. The buildings are necessarily the coolest I've seen..but just the feel and sooo many trees; it just meshes so well.

I was the only person on my Vandy interview day. But you probably shouldn't expect this :laugh:.
