Congrats on W&L. I will certainly be applying there and we'll be keeping a close eye on this thread from here on out.
Thank you. You still haven't applied anywhere?
Not yet. I'm putting finishing touches on my personal and diversity statements and should start applying in the next few days.
Semi update: I'm finally complete with Cornell and UMich which completes all my apps.
Looking for advice:
I am thinking about flying to Ann Arbor and visit Michigan. I know that meeting with someone there won't go into my app but they told me if I wish I can write a short statement and send it to them after the visit. How much, in your opinion, this can help with the app? I know that if any it's going to be very slim but I am still curious if it can do any good to show real interest. Thanks!
