that'd be funny, a couple of storm troopers sitting in back during the mock class. Vader up in front asking about scholarships.

for those visiting tomorrow, dress warm - weather is supposed to cold and rainy.  also beware all the Star Wars geeks - major convention in town (Celebration III - complete with George Lucas) traffic will suck and parking may be tough.

Wow - Now I've got another reason to go.  I was thinking about backing out, but if there's a Star Wars convention, I might just check it out.

you won't get this stuff at American..

Desmo's right.  Most people go business casual to these things.  Some folks might wear jeans and others suits, but as long as don't wear a t-shirt with obscenities all across the back and front, you should be fine.  I hope everyone took a lightsaber.

Also interested in how the open house went.  Was on the way when I lost the breaks in my car.  Definetly not an experience I would like to repeat.  Needless to say, I missed the program.  Anything of interest?

Sorry to hear about your brakes.  Scary stuff.  My brakes once went out right as I was getting ready to descend a long, steep hill that T'ed at a fairly busy road.  I fortunately noticed they weren't working before I started going down the hill.

There's got be someone with something to say about the open house over the weekend.

I went to the program, but left when the lunch started. I know these things aren't meant to be high entertainment, but I was bored and decided my time was better spent at home.  ;) They didn't tell me anything about the school that I didn't already know...plus, the Dean of Graduate Studies spoke for 30+ minutes trying to skirt around the issue/non-issue of the rankings drop. I've toured the school before, so I knew it was a beautiful place to spend a day. I was basically looking for the "this fits" feeling from the school on admit day. I chose my UGrad school completely on gut feeling, and have been a little lost in this process where I haven't been able to really come to a clear decision on where I feel comfortable......that said, the admit day didn't really clear any of that up for me. I'm from Indiana so Indy is familiar to me, which is a plus. I do love the city, and would plan on getting tickets for Colts and Pacers games as my escape from school.  :)

You say the Dean of Graduate Studies spent thirty minutes trying to skirt around the issue/non-issue of the school's recent drop in the U.S. News rankings. I've researched the issue pretty thoroughly and know why it happened.  Also, especially knowing what I know now, I'm not that concerned about the drop.  What I am curious to hear is how the dean addressed the issue and what types of questions were asked and comments made by admitted applicants about the matter.  The open house I attended was before all the rankings hullabaoo.
