TIPS FROM IDEALIST
Give yourself plenty of time to get to the fair, especially if you are travelling by car. We wouldn't want you to miss our fair because of traffic or parking issues.
Standard dress is business casual. We realize that you may be coming straight from work or a prior appointment.
Leave your resume at home. Later, you'll have more time to fine-tune and tailor your resume to the specific graduate program(s) you're applying to.
If you have them, bring a stack of business cards or address labels (even homemade ones) with your full name, email address and areas of interest. You can provide these instead of filling out various information request cards. They are easier to read, which admissions representatives really appreciate.
Bring a bag to carry the materials you collect from the grad schools.
Review the list of grad schools attending the fair in your city so that you can prioritize those that interest you most. This way, you'll have time to talk with the admissions representatives and make a good impression with well-informed questions.
No need to print out a copy of the participating grad schools. We'll hand one to you when you arrive and it will be the most up-to-date and the schools will be listed in the order that they are arranged in the venue.
