Hi! Today by email I was offered a Cornell University Informational Meeting by a volunteer for the Cornell Alumni Admissions Ambassador Network (CAAAN). I feel that it would be a great opportunity to learn more about Cornell; however, I am extremely busy during the times that he has mentioned as I have mid-year exams that I really need to study for while also finishing up applications (also an MIT interview sometime soon). I was also wondering whether skipping this would lower my chances of admission, although he does mention that "I'd like to stress that this meeting is optional and mainly for you to get to know Cornell better". Is it better if I go?
Thanks for your opinion!
EDIT: He also graduated from the college of arts and sciences while I am going for the College of Engineering.
