Of course if ever there was a year when MBA programs completely understand why you have not visited their program, this is the year. It will be very difficult for most applicants to visit an MBA program in session between now and R1 2020 deadlines. Naturally this is not great news-- but rather than wallow in something you cannot change-- let's look for the positives in this approach:

1) Think of the money you will save! Now that you have spent your bonus buying toilet paper and Clorox wipes to hunker down for Covid19, you at least won't be expected to throw down any money on air travel and you don't have to give it another thought! No one is even in most of the MBA programs around the world right now so you are not missing anything. No guilt for not being there.

2) MBA students still have access to their emails and will be able to answer your questions from afar. So reach out to the president of the Consulting club or the PE club or whatever club you want to know more about. You may find that students are more likely to answer your questions since they may have more available time. Almost every MBA program has a student ambassadors page where you can reach out to ask student ambassadors about various clubs and classes.

3)If you are working from home, it may be easier to take your lunch break to have calls with MBA students. Try to schedule at least one a week.

4) Having a concrete project to work on-- such as thinking about investing in your future with an MBA-- can be a great way to reduce stress because it gives you a job to do. One can only watch the news so much-- so use this time productively to think about your best fit MBA program and do the research that will help you in the fall.

5) if you want to have a coach to guide you through the MBA research process and help you stay focused in finding your best fit MBA program, Stratus Admissions can help. You can start by reaching out for a free consult to any of our counselors to get an idea of where you stand with your profile and help you make a plan to be ready for Fall 2020 MBA admissions.
