In an earlier post, I had spoken about some ways of finding if you and your dream B-school make for a right "fit". In this recent post from a BW MBA Journal, Erin Rupprecht from Stern talks about how "fit" is not made up and how it links up with your school experience. She also strongly advises domestic applicants (and internationals, if possible,I guess!) to "visit,visit,visit" schools.
In fact, we have two members in the DSAC totally dedicated to organizing visits that include hosted lunches, class sit-in sessions and building tours from September to May. We also host "Chicago Booth Live" - full day events that allow you to spend a day in various activities on campus, culminating in an LPF (Liquidity Preference Function) where you can down a couple of beers as you chat with current students. If you are interested, feel free to sign-up for the program here - we would love to host you and share our MBA experience with you!
