Thoughts specifically for Remote flyouts. Third of 3 threads on flyouts. If you are given the option between in person and remote, ceteris paribus, in person is probably better.

A thread on In-Person flyouts. A complement to the main thread on flyouts. Maximize the number of days you can be in the same location. Try to schedule two flyouts in the same city without going back home in between if you can.

Here is a list of questions I received most often during (first round) interviews, per request. Hope the list helps this year’s JMCs prep

Born today in 1830.
A short 🧵 E Dickinson on growth mindset/imposter syndrome
We never know how high we are
Till we are called to rise;
And then, if we are true to plan,
Our statures touch the skies—
The Heroism we recite
Would be a daily thing,
Did not ourselves the Cubits warp
For fear to be a King—
