Hi all -
We have a visit coming up and I wondered what sorts of experiences others have had on their visits. One of my concerns right now is that the other schools we have arranged to visit have been extremely friendly and helpful in coordinating our visits, sending maps, making arrangements for us to meet with folks, etc. WPI, however, has not. We have a tour and info session arranged as well as a meeting with an admissions counselor. The folks on the phone were not particularly friendly, they seem to cater to already admitted seniors (my son is a jr.), there's no seeing a dorm except in April, there have been no confirmation email or even a map for campus and parking guidelines.
Is this typical? Are they more helpful once you get on campus and/or actually decide to attend? This will be only time my son gets to visit before making a decision in the fall since we live in MO.
I can't help but to begin to develop a somewhat negative frame of mind (NOT to be shared in any way with my son!). Is my experience unusual?
