# After numerous campus interviews, Alex Sanchi, a student at BC, received two office interview invitations from the Orlando offices of two large firms. Both firms offered to cover her "out-of-pocket expenses" (travel, hotel, and meals). She scheduled the interviews for both firms on the same day, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. At the conclusion of each interview, she submitted to both firms her total out-of-pocket expenses of \$296 for mileage, hotel, meals, parking and tolls. She believes this approach is appropriate. If she had made two trips, her cost would have been two times \$296. She is also certain that neither firm knew she had visited the other on that same trip. Within ten days Alex received two checks in the mail, each in the amount of \$296. Did Alex handle the situation properly? If not what should she have done?
