This might not be very profound but most schools are very willing to talk to you if you have genuine, non-obvious questions to ask them and you avoid the zenith of the admit season. After all, this is part of the job is applicant relations. I cannot stress the genuine idea enough. After speaking with enough applicants, the admissions staff get a pretty good idea of who has a serious interest in the school and who is putting on a show.
And that's the thing...i am really really really interested in a school but how do i present myself to them (through adcom communications/contacts) such that
1) i do not be a pest
2) i show that i have genuine interest in the school
3) i basically project myself in a positive light
in the same regard, i have another question (which nobody bothered to answer in my sperate post on the subject
my school doesn't require me to send the TOEFL score (i am not a US citizen). But i have taken TOEFL and have got a respectable score. Should i send the score to my target school?
will it go on to show that i am really interested in the school and filling a gap in my application? ( i have an average AWA score of 4.5 with 95 percentile in GMAT verbal)
or will it be just an overkill?
and can/should i send a mail to adcom stating that i have taken TOEFL and have sent them (can send them) my scores. And that it is to fill a gap in my profile
