    Admissions expert David Petersam discusses if a school visit is important.

    Host: How important is a school visit?

    David Petersam: A school visit is extremely important. We recommend that all of our clients visit every school that they plan to apply to. If they can't visit every school they apply to, we certainly, strongly encourage them to apply to every school that they receive an offer from. Again, a lot of what you are going to read about is very subjective. Your opinion may differ from the writer's opinion, so you don't want to be trusting someone else's conclusion about a school. You need to visit that school, come to your own conclusions. Two very reasonable people such as the applicant and the person who wrote what they are reading can come to very different conclusions.
