  3. 3. With respect to visiting the programs to which you areapplying:• Make sure you schedule a classroom visit through theadmissions office. A student will lead you around andmake introductions for you.•Plan them before the fall, if you can and if tours areavailable this late in the school year.•Make sure you stop by the admissions office to introduceyourself.MBA Admissions Consultant |
  4. 4. • Have a couple of canned questions ready.• Make sure you have the name(s) of the person(s) youwant to speak to. Most likely there is a receptionist inthe office directing traffic.• Make the convo brief (as you just dropped by), justmake sure they put your face with your app.MBA Admissions Consultant |
  5. 5. • It does not have to be JFK speech. Keep it simple -something like "just wanted to stop by and tell youhow much I have enjoyed my class visit with Joe Blowand in Prof. Bobby Sues Organizational Behaviorclass" or "I am actively following your posts on theBweek forums (for example)".• Tell them that you are applying R1/R2/R3 and that youapplying because of X, Y and Z. This is your chanceto drop some indepth knowledge about their programin order to impress them while briefly stating how itpertains to your experiences.MBA Admissions Consultant |
