Before interview day, do your research on programs and interviews and reflect on the way in which you want to portray yourself.

On interview day, have a cheat sheet with notes about your conversations, questions, and pro-cons. Remember to stay calm, take a pause if you need to, and above all be authentic to who you are.

After interview day, be sure to capture you gut impression and write down any follow-up questions or concerns remaining.
