Has anyone been to one? And, is this a good sign? I know it can't be compared to the dinners, but I would need to take some time off work to attend so I am trying to assess if it will be worth spending the political capital.
I'm going to this - just got the invite too (and in the same boat that I went complete about a month ago and haven't heard a thing since). I wondered the same thing...how much do they plan on paying attention to who goes or not? I don't really know.
I think if you felt like you just couldn't swing it, I would email admissions and say how thrilled you were to get the invite, but that you just couldn't get the time off work. Maybe asking if there will be any other events. Then if they ARE noticing, you showed your enthusiasm.
