Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
How much time do you estimate you have spent preparing for interviews?
I found that during my first one I vastly underestimated the effort I needed to put in, and it showed. I guess the simple answer would be practice until you feel you are ready but for this next one I feel like im treading the line between healthy practice and obsession.

I'd say (ballpark figures).
- Pre-preparation (Assuming your research on the school is solid): 2 - 4 hours checking questions asked, reading posts, writing some notes down, outlines, preparing for typical questions. And then some extra time re-reading your essays (I'd say an extra 1 or 2 hours).
- And then I'll suggest 3 to 5 practice runs, but these is not for each interview but before the 1st one. Either get someone to help or tape yourself. Having someone helps much more because they can follow up on questions, or sth.
