I actually won't be able to make the LACA event, I think all the late flights back to my place will leave somewhere around 6-8 PM.


Do we have to fly back Friday night?


The e-mail says that check-out is the morning of March 31st, so I assume so.


But what if we can stay that night in NYC w/ a friend/relative?


You could probably work something out if you have accommodations. Maybe just reach out to Tracee and let her know.

DC panel here! Admittedly I was hoping for New York so I could have this and ASD all covered in one trip but on the flip side of it...I'm being interviewed by a SUPREME COURT JUSTICE. So I suppose I can't complain :D

I'm sort of glad that I'm not in the DC group because I would be a nervous wreck in front of SCOTUS

Will you find out if you have been awarded the AB after your interview panel, or do they wait til they've interviewed everyone? Trying to figure out if I need to request extensions / make a seat deposit somewhere else in the interim.

Last year, they waited until everyone finished interviewing, but we were told that this year they were trying to find a different system so that they didn't have to make the NYC interviewees wait so long. Can't give a definitive yes or no unfortunately, but definitely feel free to ask about it after your interview if you get close to a deadline.

Don't be too hard on yourself, it happens. How much of a hassle/extra expense would the train/bus be?

I think a lot of it depends on the airline. If you have southwest, you can usually change without a problem. A lot of the other airlines might be able to change for a fee. Perhaps you could volunteer to pay the change fee associated (Idk the cost of a train ride) with moving your ticket to another time.

Edit: Just checked Delta: 200$ change fee, American 200$ change fee. Not sure on united. Not sure if this would be more or less than a train ride

Question for current/former AnBryce Scholars:

I'm interviewing for two scholarship programs and both have scheduled an event on Thursday night next week. There is the AnBryce Finalists Welcome Reception with scholars, alumni, faculty, and administration from 6-8, and the other program has a dinner with current scholars at 6:30. I'm kind of at a loss on which one to attend. Maybe it doesn't really matter too much, but I'm sad I have to miss one and it feels weird to turn down one of the invitations since I'm interested in both programs! Can any of you speak about the benefit of the Thursday night AnBryce event? Feel free to respond or PM.

I know ASDs are generally pretty casual affairs but I was just wondering what we should be expecting as far as the AB receptions and what not. Do I need to be packing a tux here or does the "just look decent" rule pretty much hold for these as well?

This is from earlier in the thread and should answer your question. :)

MissMiran wrote:The reception at NYU on April 10th has in past years been what I would describe as business casual. Women wore dresses/skirts or trousers and a nice blouse; men wore dress pants and shirts but not ties or jackets. Unless the information they've sent you says something different, I assume this year will be the same. After the reception, we current scholars will take you all out to hang out and do something fun, so wear something in which you'd both be comfortable enough to hobnob with impressive people who are making the scholarship decisions and comfortable enough to go out afterwards.

Dinner with current scholars is nothing formal at all, but it is usually in relatively nice restaurants so the above standard is the safe bet for that reason. The same can be said for lunch with professors or whatever similar event you may have. You might not have that; I'm not sure of the scheduling this year. But if you do, it's not formal but is still a place where you'd want to be business casual.

Hi!

Excited to meet everyone this week during interviews/ASD!

What are people thinking in terms of outfits for the interview itself? I think I'll bring a full suit regardless, but don't want to look too dressed up if it's gonna be too much!

I was going full suit for the interview, I would imagine they are expecting standard interview attire.

Full suit! It's a very standard, formal interview. Wear what you would wear to interview for a position at a law firm.
