With respect to visiting the programs to which you are applying:

  • Make sure you schedule a classroom visit through the admissions office. A student will lead you around and make introductions for you.
  • Make sure you stop by the admissions office to introduce yourself.
  • Have a couple of canned questions ready.
  • Make sure you have the name(s) of the person(s) you want to speak to.  Most likely there is a receptionist in the office directing traffic.
  • Make the convo brief (as you just dropped by), just make sure they put your face with your app.
  • Just say some stuff like “just wanted to stop by and tell you how much I have enjoyed my class visit with Joe Blow and in Prof. Bobby Sue’s Organizational Behavior class” or “I am actively following your posts on the Bweek forums (for example)”.
  • Tell them that you are applying R1/R2/R3 and that you applying because of X, Y and Z.  This is your chance to drop some indepth knowledge about their program in order to impress them while briefly stating how it pertains to your experiences.
  • You are basically setting up a 2nd encounter if they come out to your home city for a tour event.  Then you go to the tour event again and reintroduce yourself and say you met them before in their respective admissions office.
  • Do not try and plan 2 school visits in one day.
  • Wear business casual, no excessive jewelry (dark pants and a blue or white shirt for males).
