Attending a Graduate Information Reception, need help! [#permalink] New post 25 Jul 2012, 04:38
Hello all,


This is first post, on GMATClub. I really think this website is going to be a great resource for my GMAT preparation.

I have been talking to a a recruiter for the school I really want to get into. He suggested that I attend a graduate programs information reception tonight for any questions I have about the program. There are going to be admissions staff there along with current students who are attending the school.

What kind of questions should I ask both the admissions staff and the current students? So far, I was thinking about asking basic questions like:

For the current students:
-What's experience like here?
-What are the class rooms like?
-What did you do get admission here?

For the admission staff:
-I'm a California resident and I just move to NY. Would it look better for me to become a resident of NY to apply to this University?


Any more suggestions from you guys would help!

I want to show them that I really want to attend this University. I just moved here to Rochester, NY and the University is less than a mile away so it would be really convenient. I think this would be a really good opportunity for me to network so I really want to make a good impression.

Currently, I'm prepping for GMAT exam and I am planning to apply for the 2013 year. The school's name is University of Rochester's Simon school of business.


I am interested in their MS: Accounting program. I have a 3.0 overall GPA and a 3.2 Accounting GPA, undergrad major: Business Administration: Concentration Accounting, American citizen


Their full time class profile looks like:

--------
Class Characteristics:
Enrolled MS Students: 189
Average Age: 24
Countries of Origin (non-US citizens): 21

GMAT:
Average: 680
Middle 80% range: 610-760

Undergraduate GPA:
Average: 3.4
Middle 80% range: 2.8-3.8
--------

Any help would really appreciated!

Its not all about creating an impression.

Treat the information session as just that- an opportunity for you to get first hand information about the program.
So, while you may find answers on basic questions on the website, student blogs or even in the presentation give by the b-school staff, explore other areas deeply. These could include:
1. career related question - what support can you expect from the career cell, given your goals? Which companies visit for internship/ job recruitments? Are companies of your interest present in that list? What positions do they recruit for?
2. Academics related - what kind of academic support can you expect for your career goals?
3. Community / student organizations/ clubs.
4. What have the experiences of students/ alumni been like?

All the best!
