Admitted Students day subsidies (show us the CASH)
« on: December 03, 2008, 08:04:00 AM »
I thought it would be nice to talk about admitted students day subsidies.
Berkeley gives $350 for out of state visitors.. I've heard from a friend that Michigan gives $600. Any other facts / anecdotes / tips on how to plan multiple trips at once?

I'd actually like to know this too. Do the schools usually reimburse for ASW travel?

Many schools reimburse, to varying amounts, often depending on distance or financial need, but they require receipts and you will receive the check 4-6 weeks after your trip. Which means that there will be significant out-of-pocket expenses. Personally, I'm going to plan on going to 2 or 3, to limit the out-of-pocket expense. (not a fan of using my credit card)

Comeback got some more specific answers to this question on TLS:

I'm generally sceptical about TLS-gleaned info, but rabbit9198 is reliably on top of her game (and an LSD-er).
Not applying until next cycle...

Put em up!

I think Vandy and Harvard help out at least partially
I believe last year Vandy gave up to $250.  I had to send a copy of my plane ticket receipt for the money.

Anywhere you go, you should just email the admissions office and ASK.  Columbia didn't advertise travel subsidies, but when I asked them, they gave me one.
