WAIT LIST PEOPLE WHO VISIT SCHOOLS
« on: July 25, 2007, 11:01:49 AM »
I know it's not supposed to affect your application but it can't hurt, can it? What do people do aside from take a tour? Meet with admissions counselor? Talk about application? Please help

I'm on a waitlist and I visited the school.

I think it's a good idea--if you are accepted off of the waitlist, it's good to know whether or not you like the campus.  If you don't, then you may not want to go there.

It also shows that you are interested in the school (you should follow it up with a letter of continued interest).

Of course, the down side--if you really love the campus, you may have problems imagining yourself at the law school that you will otherwise be attending.  It's a risk.

Lots of luck!

I visited a school while on the wait list. The Dean referenced meeting me and my visit when I got an acceptance call later that summer. Doesn't hurt, that's for sure.
