I agree. Roller coasters as "awesome" or "terrifying" is subjective, but roller coasters as a metaphor for both highs and lows is pretty universally accepted in America.


Or maybe only applicants from Sandusky, Ohio will be receiving decisions this week?



Great. One more irrational interpretation to obsess over...

If admissions follows their plan on releasing all AJD decisions by Feb 1st (Sat), then we should be getting admits, rejects, and waitlists this week. What sort of decisions will come for RD applicants...who knows?

Yeah, I'm thinking highs and lows. I.e., Admits, held, WL, and dings.

I'd still bring a resume just to be safe, and I'd wear a suit or similar business professional unless told or invited otherwise.

It can't hurt to bring your resume. When I responded to my interviewer, I said something along the lines of "Here's my resume and I'll bring a copy with me when we meet" and she said there was no need to do so, which answered my question for me.

I still think it's not a bad idea, though.

Just scheduled my interview. I'm not particularly interested in the school, but since it looks like it's coming before a Harvard or Chicago interview, I might as well do it.

On the off-campus interviewing portal, it tells you to bring in a resume. There's also a bit on the interviewer's handbook about failing to bring a resume. My interviewer had mine printed, but I brought it just in case.

Okay thanks for the prompt replies! I will bring a resume. Any advice on how its printed? Like normal 8x11 paper or special resume paper. As for suiting up, its super cold here, any other ideas? I don't think I have a formal coat to wear over a suit.

I really don't think anyone cares about special resume paper, so I wouldn't (and didn't!) bother, but it likely couldn't hurt either way. For the second question, no real ideas, sorry. I haven't had much need in my life for more than business casual attire, so I actually purchased a suit specifically because of law school interviews. My knowledge of professional alternatives is thus sadly limited. I actually don't have a formal coat, either, but I had a nice-looking windbreaker that looked good and was warm enough over my suit (plus I was able to take the jacket off before even meeting my interviewer, so it was a non-issue).

Wear a regular cold weather jacket over your suit and take it off as soon as you walk in the building.

Or, if the walk from your car is short, don't wear the jacket. Nothing more awkward than someone wearing a jacket and you can see their suit jacket underneath. At the very least, take it off as soon as possible.

In my mind, the highs and lows of a roller coaster implies that there will be all different types of decisions.

I would disagree with this, but I also don't think it will make you or break you.

Buy some resume paper for like $10/100 sheets and print the real resume you deserve.

At this point, I'll be happy just to hear something. I haven't heard a peep from anywhere in... forever, i think :(

Hoping for some good news today. Then I can stop stress eating chocolate. Or maybe celebrate by eating more.

Me too. Based on Johann's wording of "the rest of the week, however" made it seem like the remainder of the week (today and tomorrow) will be seeing plenty of action.
