Now there's probably a 0% chance I can make it to Philly on the 15th but it did get me thinking. Have any of you gone to these types of event before, and if so what are your thoughts? Specifically, do you think it in anyway could positively benefit you in the admissions process?
Making a personal connection with a teacher or admissions member is never a bad thing. It would definitely help against a YP.
ETA: Also, schools should not be able to email you from their admissions account when your expecting a decision any day. First this and then Berkeley emailed me today that they were excited to announce...(opens email) their new website!. This must be intentional cruelty.
No joke, got the same email. Same reaction. I'm sure they're all chuckling about this.
