Thanks for the info, jas!  I wonder if West Coast schools will offer something like that for the LA Forum...  Specifically, schools to which I'm applying :)

I went to the one in NYC last September and it was a mob scene.  There is a pretty slim chance you will get to talk to anybody much less get near the table for brochures, but they do take note of your attendance by collecting badge numbers at the tables, and I remember some applications asking whether I attended any forums (or fora), so I'd say it's worth it.
