Re-visit dates?

edited March 2010 in Prep School Parents
Does anyone know specifically when re-visit dates are generally scheduled? We are out of state for most of the schools, and depending on acceptances, will need to make travel arrangements to do revisits. I realize they may vary, but is it usually a specific week in March, or do the schools offer flexible dates for revisits? How about scheduling multiple schools -- any recommendations?

    Are you FA or FP??

    If your are FA some schools, like exeter will pay for your plane and hotel over nite.

    Lawerencville has its revist days posted on its website, wed march 31 and wed april 7.

    I haven't researched any others, and I guess no need to ask until they let you know if you are excepted

    Travel - hopefully the schools your child applied to are in the same region. Start by looking at the websites of the schools to get a sense of when their revisit days are scheduled. For example, Andover's re-visit days are March 31, April 2nd, 5th, and 6th. Check airline schedules for best pricing. Book your airline tickets as soon as you get the "acceptance" news on March 10th, so that you get 21-day advance ticket pricing. Then figure out the rest of the logistics, such as which school(s) to see first, hotels, etc.

    To give you a rough idea for Phillips Exeter, here is the 2009 info: Phillips Exeter Academy | Experience Exeter 2010

    2010 dates have not been published yet.

    This is the 2010 information for Blair Blair Academy - Admission

    When we did it, there were additional classes that parents and students could attend in the afternoon. The head of college counseling was available to answer questions during the parent reception. My son got a glimpse of dorm life and the grill during the activities break.

    Usually Blair has a revisit at the end of March and another a week later in April. This year classes start after March break on March 29th, and then it is Easter weekend. Perhaps this is why revisits are both in April after Easter.
