Today was a professional-dress day -- not for the two exams (one of which actually necessitated gym clothes), but because I was once again interviewing prospective students. While I remember only too well the anxiety and heartache and desperation of that time in my life, I can't deny the thrill of the power of sitting on the other side of the table. I feel kind of like an unlovable game show host ("You are the weakest link -- goodbye!")...and I like it.
