so...we'll see how this goes. please wish me luck (or give me advice, i am sure i will need it)! rooting hard for everybody and happy to chat about my interview after it happens if you want to pm me.

Could not agree more. JS is great. I didn't even realize how much time had passed when she finally said "oops, it's been twenty minutes. I think we'd better start wrapping up soon." You'll end off wishing you could keep the conversation going just because it's fun and gives you a chance to (sort of) interact with the school. All in all a great experience. I was so scared going into it that I literally could not eat or sleep, which was totally unfounded. MY best advice to you is to not get nervous about this. It's a lot more fun, and less stressful, than you might imagine.
