09/19/08: Just finished my GWU Interview and I *think* it went well (I'll find out in a couple of weeks). I was nervous for the first interview with the faculty member, but we did end up having a good conversation, I just don't think I got across all the points I wanted to make about myself. The second interview with the student was fantastic; we really seemed to hit it off (the student was probably someone I would be good friends with), had a great conversation that I think even went over the time. I was impressed by the school and it fits well with my goals and interests. So we'll see in a couple of weeks...fingers crossed.

10/01/08: Complete at Loyola.
10/03/08: Had interview at NYMC, the interviewer said they were recommending me for acceptance, so that is a good sign, but in the end it is the committee's decision. They said we'd hear a decision probably in December...such a long time... I recommend staying with the student host to anyone because that gave me the best feel for the school I thought. Pretty campus.
