GO FOR AN INTERVIEWJan 23 2009Journalism
GO FOR AN INTERVIEW. There would be no way I was accepted without an interview...ALSO-- get a card from everybody you meet! E-mail them! Ask them questions weekly, so your name sticks in their brain! Even if you know the answer, just shoot an e-mail. They must keep documentation of everything and the more correspondence you have, the more they are interested in you. Also, if are not too sure about your GPA apply EARLY DECISON. Just DO IT. Also, talk about FREEING PALESTINE. That's all I talked about and they seemed pretty into it. I guess they are sick of the university being full of ignorant, close-minded Zionists.
