With the NYC Forum coming up I thought I would answer a lot of questions I have been getting "YES, I think you should go"
Here are some reasons why you should go and advice for these events I wrote about roughly a month ago.http://spiveyconsulting.com/blog/forums ... e-or-draw/
Also, don't try to sell and admissions representative a watch at the event. True story --it happened to me at my first ever NYC Forum in 2000.
First of all, I really appreciate all the helpful advice. I had two questions regarding these forums.
I'm signed up for the Boston Forum and am getting tons of emails from schools stating they hope I stop by the table. Are these spam messages sent out to anyone registered to go? Or does the school target specific applicants similar to how they approach fee waivers? I'm assuming the former, but was curious.
Secondly, I'm trying to decide whether or not to haul these bottles of home brew with my resume on the label to this forum. But seriously, is there any advantage to having a business card, resume or other item to be able to hand over when talking with the reps? Or should I limit trying to stay on their radar with the simple follow up email?
