There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
I'm planning to visit the following schools in June. I know that some schools don't track visits, but some do and weigh them in your application. Would appreciate any insights on the list, and do correct me if i'm wrong on anything.
HBS - they don't really care Stanford - they don't really care Wharton MIT Kellogg Chicago Booth Tuck Berkeley Columbia Stern UCLA Yale SOM Cornell Duke
I have no hard data that Stanford and HBS don't track visits, though it would certainly make sense that they would not given their brand and the volume of applicants they can expect to attract. As for the rest of the schools, I recommend assuming that they *will* note all formal visits (i.e., visits you've notified them about in advance) in some way. More importantly, the value of the school visits is not only that it shows your interest, but that it gives you personal material demonstrating your interest in the school that you can refer to in your essays, thus differentiating yourself from other applicants. Above all, it gives you opportunities to speak with students (be sure you get their names), who, if you stay in touch with them and they want to help you, may write letters of support on your behalf later in the application process. In other words, don't *not* visit a school just because you think they don't note visits in applicants' files.
