Throughout this month and next I've been visiting a lot of admission events for various school around the NYC area. Beyond a couple of schools that I have researched very well and have real good questions to ask, I am kinda lost as to what else I should be asking...I dont want to ask questions whose answers are available on the web (make me sound silly) but for schools that are not my top choices...but I am going to the events to find out more, I can think of anything to ask and find myself wasting time....I was wondering what information you folks seek at these events...
1. Almost all top schools boast of diversity, leadership, excellent curriculam and blah blah.... What makes your school unique?
2. I like to work in X country, how strong is your alumni in that area?
3. Take contact information of all the alums present there because if you contact them afterwards, I am sure only a single one or nobody will reply to your queries.
4. Ask alums about their unique experience at b-school.
BTW which schools' events you will be attending?
