  • Visit a school's virtual booth to see a list of programs, read their descriptions, and view any other materials they share
  • Participate in the public discussion board by asking a question or sharing your experience
  • Get in line to chat privately with an admissions representative for TBD minutes
  • A day or two before the fair, log in and visit participating schools' virtual booths to learn about their programs. Create a list of schools that interest you and visit their websites for more information. Researching participating schools and familiarizing yourself with their programs beforehand will help you make the most of your time at the fair.
  • Come up with questions and type them in a digital notepad or word document before the fair. Have these at the ready so that you can simply cut-and-paste your questions during the fair (instead of spending your precious minutes typing). Remember, you only have TBD minutes to privately chat with a representative!
  • To follow up with participating recruiters and representatives, please ask them for their contact information during your chat. Don't forget to ask them if it would be appropriate to get in touch after the event.
