I would like to contact the admissions office of the schools to which I am applying to introduce myself and schedule campus visits. Any suggestions on how to leave a good 1st impression and what are some questions that I need to ask?
- Be nice to everyone - including the secretary in the office. Make sure they are making good comments about you, not bad ones after you leave the office.
- Introduce yourself to the admissions people if you can, but don't be pushy. I was pushy only after I was waitlisted last year.
- Ask smart questions - show that this school is a priority and you've thought about things. Don't ask dumb obvious questions.
