Guys,

I need your suggestions.

I am planning to apply for MBA in fall 2010. Spain is my first preference and therefore I am applying to top 3 B schools in Spain (IESE, IE, ESADE). I am an international student (form India).

Guys what are your opinion on visiting a school in Spain itself. I mean considering the money involve in going and staying there for at least a week. :(

How much visiting a school, interacting with students and faculty help in the admission decision particularly during interview?

Hey bandit - do it only if you can afford both the trip and the time. Most schools are OK with internationals not visiting them. It is encouraged because it will help you decide say between IE and IESE. As far as increasing your admission chances goes - I dont think the visit matters. I interviewed at Chicago and NYU at campus (flew 22 hours from Australia) - result 1 ding and 1 waitlist then ding.
