Next month the TSAO (Ten Schools Admission Organization) will be hosting a reception in my city, and all the schools that have me on their mailing lists have invited me there. I already know which ones I will be applying to and also that I won't be able to travel to their campuses during the application process, which means that I will have to do my interviews off-campus.
All of the schools have admission officers available at the reception for interviews, but they all have other forms of off-campus interview with representatives (alumni, parents of students, etc.). Which type of interview should I opt for? The interview is one of the parts of the application process that I am most confident about, and I understand that it is a two-way process for both the applicant and the school to get to know each other. There is also the concern that, if they assign me a time (do they?) for the interview, whether or not I can fit four separate ones in the day they are in my city and make a favorable impression. I will probably have to RSVP within the next few days, and I'm pretty confused.
