Following up on the lunch, there were 6 or 7 large tables for the visit participants. Each had 2 students and 5-7 visitors.

I showed up in a suit and tie and quickly took the tie off. Most people were in a sport jacket and khakis or slacks, or a suit with an open collar. A good amount of people didn't have a jacket, just button down or sweater. It's very casual.

For mine, there were 1 or 2 panels to start, then First Coffee, then class. Lunch was casual; it was a table with 2 students and a handful of us visiting. After that, a couple more panels and then a wrap up chance to talk to students.


Thanks for the reply. Did you bring something to take notes with? This is my first campus visit and I'm not sure what to expect.

Also, what were the panels you sat through?

I had a small notebook with me. They also hand out a folder with a lot of information. Panels covered financial aid, career services, academics/case study method overview, a student-only panel (ask anything, no admissions there, etc). I might be forgetting one. They do a campus tour as well.

Also got invited to interview. Got the email at 2pm.

I was there for a class visit in November, and people were pretty consistently in business casual. It looks to me, too, that the panels they are offering on the interview day are the same ones they had on the visit day I attended. I definitely recommend sitting in on a class if you can. They had us introduce ourselves and say what food we could eat every day for the rest of our lives if we were stuck on an island (I said mac and cheese, if you're interested). Everyone was incredibly helpful. I signed up for the first Friday interview I could get to get this whole process over with. Good luck to all of us!

Hard to say. My last name starts with D so that could be the case. I think they'll keep sending out invites for the next few weeks at least, or even up til the deadline. I wouldn't start stressing about it yet.
