Think about your application as being more than just your essays, GMAT and interview. You should think of every interaction that you have with the school as being something that can be a credit or debit to what people think of you. Even at the info sessions, you might not be getting evaluated at the time but you should act like you are. Are you paying attention at the info session and asking good questions?

I went through Wharton WEMBA, and as a student, we see maybe hundreds of applicants when they come for interview. As an applicant, when you do your school visit, you're invited to sit in a class. Applicants think they are blending in as one of the dozens of people in the room, and you THINK that nobody's looking at you.

But guess what, ALL of us in the room know who you are, including the professor. Do you look interested in class, do you look like you want to be here? If you're on the phone, texting, half paying attention, it works against you. Some teachers have a very strict no phones/computers policy during lecture, so when you pull out a phone you just hit a nerve.

These kinds of things might not get factored into your actual application, but people get a "feel" for who you are.
