Here is my two cents: A list of DON'TS:

  • Asking any questions to the Admission Committee that can be easily answered from the website or a web search.
  • Asking what are my chances of getting in or what are my chances of getting a scholarship?
  • Asking to review the resume line by line?
  • Being rude to any staff member.
  • Hounding them for more and more information or contacts.
  • Sound boring or having a monotonous tone. Sound too enthusiastic or too desperate.
  • Arriving too early and interrupting their task.
  • Giving any gift or asking for a picture/selfie.
  • Not sending them a thank you note after the meeting.

If possible, do a bit research on their Linkedin profile too and try to find a common element between you and the Adcoms :thumbup:

Was once at an admissions event where a person asked the admissions officer what tuition was..

Almost everyone in the room started laughing
