The person you want to speak with is Dean Schwartz. He is in the office that you check into for the tour. I would email them prior to your arrival and ask if you can schedule a time to speak with him. Other than that, the tour is just a tour.
yeah, echoing this. i tried to see Schwartz and even emailed before hand. but apparently he's no longer available for one on ones.
So, I went for the tour this week. There were maybe a dozen folks who came and around half stayed for one-on-one's with the admissions committee. I was called back to chat with Schwartz (didn't set it up before hand since the tour confirmation email made it seem like you couldn't do that). I think he took chats with folks since he happened to be in the office? We ended up chatting for 10 minutes about my application, next deposit dates (mid-June), and asked me more about myself. So, do with this info what you will but it may just be catching the admissions staff on the right day.
