Q & A Community
Does it really matter if I visit schools? Are they going to know?
I’ll answer the second question first. Colleges will know you visited if you go on an official tour and attend an information session. Most tours begin in either the admissions office or visitor’s center. Colleges usually have students sign in and fill out a form. Some colleges have forms available at the admission office even if the office is closed.
Does it matter if you visit? College visits are a great way to learn about the school and the students who attend.Taking a tour, listening to the information session, sitting in on a class and eating in the dining hall can greatly help you decide if a school is right for you. Talking informally with students on campus can help you to develop a sense of what life might be like at a particular college or university. If at all possible, visit.
How does demonstrated interested play into this?
It depends on the school. Some schools use it in the admissions process. If a student visits it is one way of showing the school that the student is serious.
