How does/did everybody deal with repeatedly missing classes for interviews and recieving calls for your screening while in class?

I go to a non-target so the professors probably aren't as used to it as they are at the target schools.

Don't pick up the phone in the middle of class, they will leave a voicemail.
Schedule interviews around classes if you can.

Common sense here bro.

Around halfway through first year of college I realized that lectures are pointless and stopped going.

Problem solved.

Answer your phone as you're walking out of class.

I answered my phone as i was walking out of class, only to be getting rejected by MS. After returning to class the teacher said "What was so important that you had to answer your phone in my class?" My reply, "apparently nothing....."

They will almost always email you or call you to set up a time to do the phone screens. Don't set up the phone screens for times when you're in class. You've likely got multiple days and 10+ hours in a day to choose from - surely you can make yourself available without conflict.

this. i set up almost all of my phone interviews on the days i have the least class, and generally with an hour or two buffer around classes, just to stay safe (i've had people call half an hour late)
