10 Essential Questions to Ask When You Visit a B-School 

If you’ve ever made a campus visit, you probably came with plenty of questions. Here’s something to ponder: Were they the right questions to ask? Even more important: Did I talk to the right people?

Sure, you can ask about a program’s strengths, financial aid packages, and living arrangements. And they’re all pertinent. To learn if a program is a true fit, the best strategy is to talk to current students.

That’s the advice of Stratus Admissions Counseling CEO Shawn O’Connor, who warns, “After visiting several business schools as a prospective student, they all start to sound the same.” By talking to students, you can learn how others just like you approached their decision just a year or two earlier What’s more, you can quickly decide if their criteria – and the ultimate results – fit with you. From the social scene to startup support, here are 10 questions and topics that O’Connor advises prospective students to cover to help them clarify which programs will work best for them.
