How important is it to visit campus, attend a class, and talk to professors? I'm thinking at schools like Columbia, NYU, UCLA...

If you don't do ED at Columbia, do you really need to attend the campus and introduce yourself to admissions officials in order for them to think you care? Is this enough to impact a decision?

It is a good question! Visits cost quite a bit and are a big time and energy drain. However, there is a value in visiting your schools, even if just to get a sense for the location/environment/vibe/etc
See this discussion - that should answer it: b-school-visit-superthread-156405.html

Schools usually don't admit it openly, but campus visit may help your admission chances by showing commitment. If it helps you can read this article: http://www.aringo.com/CampusVisit.htm
