Halloween has come and gone. I saw lots of kids in the streets, but the way our house is oriented, we had few if any kids come to the door. The entrance to our door requires one to enter a long dark hallway. Poor kids missed out on some very good candy. Ah well. As for me, I went to Starbucks while my wife stayed home to give out candy so that I could do some GMAT studying. Problem solving is still going great. Sentence Correction is another story. I have found though that Arco has a very thorough Sentence Correction guide that is unlike anything I've seen in Princeton and Kaplan. Lot's of good examples and thorough well written explanations.
So I've booked my Tuck and Darden Interviews. I'm also going to be visiting some other schools. My schedule is as follows.
Fly into Virginia on Sunday night, Nov 29th
Nov 28 Darden Interview, Class Visit and info session (Monday)
Nov 29 Wharton, Class visit and tour
Fly up to Boston from Philly
Dec 1 Harvard, Class visit and tour
Dec 2 Tuck Interview, Class visit and info session
Dec 3 Go back to Boston or to New York to possibility visit Cornell or Columbia. Will depend on how my energy levels will be.
I'll be flying back on Dec 4th. It'll be nice to meet some of the other Bloggers when I get out there if you guys have time.
Darden required one to book the Class visit and Interview seperately.
Tuck has a really nice setup. You book the Interview and then they e-mail you a complete agenda with everything all planned out. Here's what they sent just by booking the interview:
9:45am Arrive at Tuck
10:10am Class visit
12:00pm Q&A with member of the admissions committee 12:15pm Tour of campus 12:45pm Lunch with students 1:30pm Interview
