    Hi everyone! New comer as applicant for Accounting 2018 Fall.
    I just got a campus interview from one of my perfectly-matched programs(as far as in my opinion XD). This invitation came way earlier than expected.
    There will be workshop and individual interviews with professors.

    Just wondering generally speaking, how how much is the chance of admission from campus visit? I know maybe this is a hard to answer question, but any thoughts could help! Thanks!

    Also, any tips for how to behave during the visit? especially the workshop part. I will share my experience with the visit and forgive me for hiding the name.

    Congrats! It depends, but usually at least half. If you are invited out this early then it is probably higher than that.

    Be yourself. The campus visit is a great opportunity for you to interview them as well. You want to find out everything about the school that you can. Ask the PhD students about the program and interactions with faculty. Ask professors what they are currently working on. You should try to get an idea of this yourself, but it is also a good question. You will probably tell your "why a phd" story several times.

    Have you ever attended a workshop? Read the paper beforehand so you can try and understand what is going on. Be attentive, silence your phone, etc. You shouldn't be afraid to ask a question or two if you have them but you are probably not going to impress anyone with your insight at this point. It would be perfectly fine to be silent throughout. If you ask any question that isn't completely stupid, that would be a positive. It would be bad if you fall asleep, text the whole time, or talk so much that you derail things (I have never seen an interviewing applicant do this).

    Thanks a lot YaSvoboden! I have attended several Seminars from Accounting department in my current university. Maybe Seminars and Workshop are the same but just different names? Or Workshop expects more interaction with the presenter/audience.
    Definitely agree that asking not-stupid questions is the most important and difficult part. And I really need to be bold in asking questions and be polite for the whole visit. I summarized what professors usually ask presenters in the Seminar, and trying to ask similar questions in my way if applicable. Haha.
    Thanks a lot for your suggestions

    Seminars are usually classes for PhD students where you discuss papers in a small group. Workshops are when an outside speaker comes and presents new research and the faculty of the hosting university give feedback.

    My advisers told me that a campus visit means pretty much a lock unless the professors there really, really dislike you when they meet you.'
