Waitlisted- Does a school visit help?

Postby mrwc18 » Tue Jan 13, 2015 2:31 pm

I was waitlisted at two schools in my area (NY) and I'm curious if I should officially visit to school to increase my chances of getting an admit?

If it's not expensive to get there it certainly can't hurt...

I haven't been WL'd, but before a decision was made, I visited a certain school and met with some of the adcomms. They explicitly said the following: "We will begin making decisions during the 3rd week in January, and just so you know, you visiting us in person is definitely going to give you...brownie points, so to speak."
