The Value of the Visit
The spring or summer following Junior year is a good time to visit some of the schools you have applied to, or are planning on applying to. Websites and books can provide some great insight, but going to the school, walking around the campus, observing students, and touring facilities is the best way to figure out if a school is right for you.
When you are on campus don't be afraid to talk to current students. Ask them about classes, professors, the surrounding area, etc. Most students will give you an honest opinion. If you can, set up an appointment with an admissions representative to discuss any further questions you have. Just like college, you are going to spend four years at the school you choose, so make sure you like it.
