What should be on the agenda of everyone's campus visit? Obviously attending a class, speaking with students, and checking out campus life, but what else? Is it possible to speak with the Admissions Committee?

Probably can't speak with adcom beyond the normal chit chat. Most of your visit is structured before you even get there. But, I would concentrate on getting a good FEEL for the school by talking to the students--see if they match your personality.

For me:

1. Walk around campus, just to get a feel of the buildings, facilities, surroundings.

2. Poke head into career center, entrepreneurship center, student activities/services offices and say hi if people aren't too busy. See what special programs are offered.

3. Class Visit

4. Official Tour (if any)

5. Talk to students I've contacted before I even go to the campus (through email and phone). Some will show you around and give you great insights.

6. Grab any flyers, newsletters, pamphlets you see around, since that gives you a good idea of what is publicized to the *students* (and not just the prospectives).

7. Meet rhyme (if you're visiting GSB) :wink:

Not sure how interviews work at the schools you're looking at, but I just had a visit to UNC-Chapel Hill and included in that is your interview with one of the admissions officers. I found it very enjoyable and even ended up with a tip that came in handy when polishing off my essays.
