    Visiting Universities??

    Sponsored Ad:
    I am applying to PhD programs admissions in Fall 2020. I have been talking with someone who just finished a PhD at a Top 50 program and he recommended visiting the school and meeting with some faculty members (to discuss the program and their research). Is this a good idea? To what extent could it hurt or help my application? (Is this different from the question regarding fly outs?)

    Re: Visiting Universities??

    Students who are admitted to a program are often all invited out for a "visit day." Often, expenses are paid.

    Before then, some departments welcome visitors and others don't want them. For example, MIT says "Can I visit your department or contact faculty before being admitted?
    No."

    In other disciplines, contacting faculty before applying is often the norm. It isn't in economics.
