Not every country changes the clocks to take advantage of summer sunshine, and the ones that do roll forward or back on different dates. For those outside the U.S., please note that we are currently in Eastern Daylight Saving Time (EDT), which is UTC-4. We moved the clocks ahead on Sunday morning, and we know from past experience that this will catch some folks by surprise when they learn they have missed a scheduled phone call with us. Please take note! If you are outside the U.S., do the calculation so that you call at the correct time.
To emphasize the importance of this information, I have called in Dan’s pal, Murray.
As we can see, Murray is eagerly looking forward to your 10:00 phone call. He’s a busy dog, though, and you don’t want to keep him waiting.
While his scheduled 10:00 caller mistakenly assumes it’s still only 9:10, he will give up waiting and settle in for his nap.
Naturally, Admissions staffers don’t nap every time someone is late for an appointment, but you still don’t want us to move on to the next activity. Please be sure you’ve made note of the time difference between Fletcher and wherever you’re calling from.
