I usually bring a pen and notepad though I hardly ever use it. I just bring this stuff with me to carry any handouts that might be given though usually they provide a folder. Sometimes during information sessions they give important info that you might want to jot down and use during the interview or ask about. Hope that helps!

i would bring a leather bound folder thing... rarely used it except to write certain points of conversation- i.e. a couple interviwers told me about books to read. i would keep business cards in it, make notes about the presentations, etc.

One thing you might want to ask is if there is much walking so you can have comfortable shoes if needed.

I recommend bringing a disarmingly charming disposition and a million-dollar smile. Everything else is fluff. If having fluff improves your disposition or smile (chapstick ?) then by all means bring it with you.

A positive attitude, comfortable shoes, reasons why you love the school!

(And a pen.)

A toothpick or piece of floss is not a bad idea either if you have an afternoon interview and plan to eat any of the freebie lunch.

Leather bound portfolio with notepad inside, eye drops, a NICE pen (not a bic), chapstick, a smile, and a lint roller.

What you take inside: portfolio (can fill it up with stuff to read while waiting), pen, smile.

DEFINITELY, DEFINITELY bring a number 2 pencil. I have found that this has been very important at several steps of the application process.

1-3 $100 bills...depending on how many interviewers you have.
