Don’t drink too much.

Solid move. A glass or two of wine with dinner is fine. No hard liquor. Have seen many nascar crashes with folks who push it.

Yeah, don’t drink too much. Be reasonable on expenses (don’t loot the hotel minibar, don’t order the most expensive thing on the menu, don’t UberLUX to and fro the airport). If any of your life experiences are a bit too unusual or require explanation (i.e. family history), save them for when you’re at the firm. DO NOT, and I repeat DO NOT, diss on any aspect of the city and especially on the neighborhood the firm is in. One time I had an interviewee actually complain that the subway station was not as close to the firm as he had hoped it was and if I always walked so much. Terrible.
