    ask whatever you think that can benefit you, ask things that will get answers on how best to integrate into that particular system.


    what are your goals?

    as for the personal info(family and things) i dont know? i guess that'll depend on how you feel answering those questions.
    Good post! Never forget - it's more of an interview for YOU than it is for them. Yes, this is an arrogant attitude, but it will instill an aire of confidence. You are obviously applying to MIT. So, comment on the fact that Harvard or Yale has such and such... Your research of the competition and care for your future will speak volumes about where you will go as a student of the institution!

    You have it easy - don't fret!

    Oh, and there's really nothing wrong with state universities - after your first job, all that matters is how dedicated to your field of study!

    ^ right(up one more post)

    no worries...

    if it seems like it is going bad, perhaps you could explain the proper uses of a pit or cage and the joys of chumba.

    nice goal.
    Thanks, I like to think so

    Yeh, that goal is pretty simple to state
    And the reason for the goal: cars, land and investing

    Yeh, it is an interview for me. That's why I need to ask some questions. I've got one that will ask about differenes between a dual and a double major.

    Not applying to MIT or CalTech. So what do I need to know about the competition
    I know that they share the same philosophy as CalPoly, learn by doing.

    Should I bring a notepad/pen to the interview?

    Ok, so the interview went great.

    Now, should I email the guy? And if so, what should I say?

    following up is a must.

    i would call.

    ask what he thought about the encounter, what he thinks of you, how well it went, then let him do the talking.

    Yes you should, thank him for the opportunity, you enjoyed it and that you are hoping to see him in the fall... something like that good luck
    I have found you an argument; I am not obliged to find you an understanding.

    Ah, ok. How much time should I give him before I email him?

    BTW: This wasn't a professor. It was an admission councelor. They are the guys who will be going over student applications.
