What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The length of the presentation took the whole time so make sure you fly out of boston at like 6pm so you have enough time to get around and handle anything you may need to get done. Also, eat some breakfast before hand. Lunch is around 12ish, so if you get up early and get ready and what not and dont eat, you will probably have a growling stomach come lunch. Eat fairly quick, the students and faculty take you out during lunch. Mine was closer to the end of lunch though." Report Response
