I've seen some of the adcoms on here ask applicants in the WAMCs and confidential if and how much they networked. This is new to me, I didn't realize applying to school would require this. Truthfully, I don't even know what this entails. An email at the beginning of the cycle to the dean of admissions? Find current students and invite them for a virtual cup of coffee after emailing them a Starbucks gift card? I don't go to a large and prestigious school...(the reason why I mention this is I recently found out the so called T30s make recruitment informational webinars at big name undergrads like Vandy, I saw Sinai do it...that's not happening at my little state school). What is networking why, when and how?
