My case may be a complete exception, but during a visit to Emory's evening program class I was the last visitor to stay for the second half of the class (classes last 3 hrs and visitors are allowed to exit during intermission). The professor knew about my job from a quick intro in the beginning and actually asked me a question during class that was very pertinent to the class subject and my work in Media. I answered and got a reply that "I would definitely do well in that program." in front of the entire class. At the end the students asked for my "verbal commitment" to join the program and one asked for my business card because he was looking to transition to my company.

I have visited classes at other schools before, but this was the first time I actually spoke in an MBA class. I think this was a very rare exception.

LOL, great analogy!

THanks for the great tips. I would actually like to attend Kellogg on an official visit. Does anyone know who I can contact at the university for information on this?

I am a little curious about something. In all the b-school classes I've sat in on, they have relied heavily on class notes. I don't think I've seen a single textbook in those classes. Do professors rely a lot less on textbooks in b-school than in other graduate programs? I guess it would make sense, because if it's mostly case studies and industry examples, then you don't really need textbooks. Is this what you all have observed, too?

Its a mix and depends largely on the class. Some classes are just cases and notes, others (e.g. corporate finance, accounting) require a book. A lot of classes have recommended (a.k.a. useless) reading as well.
