Lessons/suggestions Next year we will have the fair in the main lobby of our medical sciences building instead of the conference center down the street so students who are on their rotations and can only get away for a few minutes can stop by. Also, we will not have the fair on a Friday afternoon, which should not be a problem next year, since we will not be limited by the availability of the conference center.

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS
Comments Plan early, follow up on letters of invitation, and advertise widely.
