Difference between attending ASW & a random day

Postby lawschoolgirl312 » Wed Jan 24, 2018 3:47 pm

Notre Dame does scheduled visits on Fridays and its a lot cheaper to fly there on a random Friday than on ASW weekend.

Does anyone know if there is a big difference?

I've been curious about the same thing! Columbia's ASW are wednesday and Thursday and it's harder to take off work in the middle of the week

If you’re serious about the school, go to ASW because I feel like you get a better grasp of the type of people you’ll be around next year. If you’re just interested in the area, go on an individual visit and you’ll get much more attention from an assigned student or someone!

In my opinion, going on a random day will help you get a better feel for what the school is normally like, even if it doesn't give you any insights into your potential classmates. When I was applying to law schools, I did two random visits and one ASW visit. I found the random visits to be more informative and helpful than the ASW visit. (Thanks, Harvard, for making the decision to decline you extremely easy by being the most insufferable snobs in the history of insufferable snobbery.)

I was deciding between two schools and went on random, non-ASW days, and it actually really helped me make my decision to see the school I did not end up choosing on a regular day. (It seemed really kind of oppressive and unsociable, especially compared to students of the other school the same week.) I think that might have been glossed over if I had gone on a day when the school was purposefully making its pitch and trying to recruit students.
