What does visiting school do for your chances?
« on: March 14, 2005, 04:45:56 PM »
Hey everyone.  I just got waitlisted at St. John's. I keep hearing that visiting a school is a good way of showing interest but how will the admissions committe know that you've visited?? Do you have to meet with them too?  I have a 151/155 3.5 gpa so even getting waitlisted here is a miracle. I would really love to go to this school and according to LSN, everyone on their waitlist got accepted last year except one.  Any advice would be appreciated.  Thanks.

email the director/dean of admissions thanking her for the opportunity to be on the WL.  Then express your interest in remaining on the waitlist and tell them you'd love to attend their school.  Finally, ask if you could set up an appointment for a tour.  Most likely, the dean/director of admissions will have a short interview with you as well.

Good Luck.
