Revisit if waitlisted?

Can you revisit a school if you are waitlisted? I am sure not on the scheduled revisit days for admitted students, but what I mean is can you just show up and take a walk around the campus anyway. In particular, I am wondering about Choate and SPS?

    Unfortunately, no, you can not revisit if you are waitlisted. The admissions offices are incredibly busy right now, and they just do not have the resources to organize visits at this time.

    And it’s not really appropriate to show up and just walk around. Think about your own local school - I expect they also have strict rules about visitors in order to ensure the security of the staff and students.

    If you want to visit the school, you will have to wait until this summer, or after the fall term starts. Check the websites for the schools - some will post dates as to when they start scheduling school visits.
