When to visit
« on: December 04, 2006, 10:46:04 AM »
Sorry if this has already been discussed elsewhere but I looked a bit and didn't see it.

Are you waiting until you get acceptances to do any visiting or are you visiting at least some of your top picks and/or those near you w/out having been accepted? If the latter, are you/ did you say anything about your still pending applications?

I'm thinking about visiting some of my top picks but I'm not sure whether to try to discuss my application or whether that's even appropriate. Any thoughts on how to tactfully do this or is it simply not a good idea?

Me too, except the issue is more of vacation time than money.

yeah, I am waiting for acceptances and then using vacation time to road trip it for a week this spring.  I would say that if you visit while your app is pending, as long as you are well-informed, interesting, ask good questions, etc. that it will probably help your application by showing your enthusiasm in the school.

Thanks all! It is good to know that its not uncommon to only visit the schools to which one has been accepted-- now I don't feel so obligated.
