Visiting schools you're waitlisted at

Postby studyingeveryday » Fri Jan 06, 2017 10:08 am

Has anyone ever had any success (or know someone who did) in getting off a waitlist in which they think a campus visit helped them? Especially if they visited from really far away?

it's unclear how much a visit will help you, but it does show interest. schools are most concerned that if they accept you, you won't attend. if you visit, especially if it's far away, it shows you're interested and are likely to attend. it might not be worth it to spend the money, because the increase in odds of getting you in are so small, but if you're in the area already, i would stop by for a chat with admissions.

Like the above poster said I don't believe it would hurt if you are already in the area because it does show continued interest in wanting to attend the institution. However, I am not too sure if would help getting off the waiting list either. But if you wanted to visit the school and get a feel for the environment just to see the atmosphere I don't see that hurting either while also speaking to admissions while you are on campus.
