I plan to apply in May/June of 2008. I've met some admissions folk via several fairs and conferences but would like to do a series of trips to visit schools and introduce myself before I apply. Is this a bad idea? I tend to do well in interview settings so I'm not worried about coming off poorly, more concerned that such introductory visits are just not done. Anyone familiar with this topic? When would be the best time to visit schools? When are they most likely to be receptive to meeting with me (i.e. least busy)? I suppose I should just call some admissions offices and ask, but figured I would appeal to the infinite wisdom of the non-trads first. thanks in advance for any advice.
