Do most people pay for their own travel to interview weekend?


Recommended Posts

Hello! I was invited to an interview weekend. The invitation says they can cover travel costs, but it doesn't seem clear on who will actually book my flight. 

Is it usual for the department to handle all of this? Or do most people make their own reservations and get reimbursed later on?

Most of the time you make all your own reservations and then forward the receipts to the appropriate person for reimbursement. If they didn't give you the email of that person they might after your trip is over.

They should tell you beforehand how much they are willing to reimburse. I have seen amounts from $200 to $800, sometimes its just airfares, sometimes you can get everything reimbursed including room and board, sometimes you are housed by grad students.... you should ask the school directly !
