That's great, I'd definitely like to meet up the day before on Friday (the 15th). I've just confirmed my interview, but I still haven't received the information packet. If you don't mind answering, what is the rundown of the day like/what can we expect?

Terry Scott always starts with a welcome talk then introduces the interviewers. Then you’ll either have two interviews in the morning and one in the afternoon or one in the morning and two in the afternoon. When you’re not in the interviews they do different discussions one about the program and financial aid, there’s a Q&A with past students, during lunch current students come and eat with us and answer questions also and then there’s a group activity. Something fun where you have to work as a group to complete the task. Then they do a wrap up talk and send us on our way. You won’t get an information packet until you arrive at the interview. When you get there they will give you a packet with your interview schedule, a name tag and take a picture of you. Then there is a light breakfast and everyone goes into the room and settles in until they start the first talk.
The interviews have two interviewers and three potential students so it can definitely be an interesting dynamic but it’s nice if you find the others you’re interviewing with and chat with them a little before you go in so you all feel a little more comfortable with each other.

I confirmed yesterday.  I'm from the Anchorage area and a first time applicant. I would love to meet up the evening before to settle any nerves 🙂  One thought on location where many groups meet is the Kaladi Brothers off Brayton Dr.  Not sure, but there may be a possibility to reserve the side room???

Hello All,

I've started a facebook group to help plan for these kind of meet ups The group last year was pretty resourceful. I'm a second year reapplicant from Fairbanks. Just copy and paste the group name below and we can start from there. Hope this helps!

I received an interview! I have interviewed twice before and then had to return to school to get my bachelors. I am very happy to have the opportunity again and would love to meet up with those who are interested on the 15th. It is very helpful to have some familiar faces going in.

Received an invite on Tuesday and confirmed my placement! Also received my information packet in the mail today. Would be interested in meeting up as well...I am also familiar with the Kaladi Brothers on Brayton Drive (used to be my high school go to spot), which would provide a nice place to talk as compared to a busy bar/restaurant on a Friday night. The room will likely need to be reserved? However, I believe there is a Facebook group that might be in the midst of organizing a meetup already?

Hi everyone!! I interviewed in Seattle last week and they asked me if I would like to be accepted to the Anchorage campus since I am from Fairbanks! Of course I said yes. I started a FB group for our class so we can get to know each other. Looking forward to meeting you all!
