I'd lean toward it not being worth it, would definitely call first and say "Hey I'm going to be in the area on day X, would I be able to meet with someone?" If they react well, book it, if not, no costs incurred.


What. 2 people??

Not surprising considering how slow and uncommunicative they are

Do these people ever sleep, or are they locked in the building with a caffeine IV forcibly hooked into their arm?

The admissions dept is more than 2 people. It sounds like one just left, but that still leaves 3 not counting KP, who I think is also still technically part of admissions.

Also, I'd be very surprised if you wouldn't be able to meet with someone if you showed up. In the last couple weeks I've seen at least 2 waitlisted students heading to meetings with admissions staff.

Where 2014 is on point, though, is that if there are no spots there are no spots. Seems like a lot of expense without a huge chance of return.

Just admitted off WL via email. Received a call checking my status earlier this week. I was not interviewed until after getting on WL at the end of March.

If this is the extent of the stats they're admitting off WL, I think a lot of us can pack up and go home.

Meh, I got the interest call Monday (though I've been on vacation out of cell coverage for the last week, so I just listened to the message today), and my stats definitely aren't in that range.
