Hi all! I am a student from Chicago, Illinois. I am extremely interested in UC Santa Barbara due to their spectacular location and good Computer Science program. However, UCSB is extremely far from Chicago (6 hour flight). If I pushed it hard enough, there is a chance I would be able to get out there to visit before I apply. However, I don't want to do that unless it is absolutely necessary. Would visiting the campus give me an advantage over other applicants who don't? Any help with this would be appreciated.
