    Jeez... relax, it's not even close to the end of the world. Call him and tell him you were sick. Don't come off as hysterical. He'll understand.

    It's definitely not the end of the world. Call him and apologize (possibly with the excuse Roberto had) and ask if you can arrange for another time to interview. And if you don't an interview, it's not the end of the world. Interviews don't count for that much anyways.

    I would suggest that you apologize, but tell the truth. You should always tell the truth. You are not the first person who slept through something pretty important. The interviewer will understand, and will probably laugh about it. But if you ignore it, you are being rude, and you are probably not a rude person. If you lie about it, you are making a double mistake. No need for that.

    I had a student forget the interview. And I had to call him to find out what happened. He was very apologetic; the second meeting was successful. I didn't hold the first miss against him.

    The problem you have now is that you are running out of time. I suggest calling him ASAP.

    Also, as you might have heard by reading these boards, the interview at brown isn't really emphasized much anyway.
