Admitted Student Program conflicts with Stanford's! What to do?

<p>So, Stanford's is 4/24 - 4/26. Harvard's 4/25 - 4/27. </p>

<p>I obviously cannot attend both, but I'm thinking to attend 1 day for one and 3 days for the other, or split 2 days each. Problem is that it would take 8-12 hours (3 hours added since I'm flying from Sacramento) for the flight so there goes half a day. Which would you suggest I do? Should I just give all 3 days to Harvard considering my proximity to Stanford and just visit on my own some other time? I <em>really</em> would like to get an in-depth feel for the 2012 student body at <em>both</em> places and how well I mesh.</p>

<p>I think this was very poor scheduling on the universities' part since there is bound to be substantial overlap between their admits.</p>

<p>For those of you in this situation, what are you planning to do?</p>

<p>stanford>harvard so yeah go to stanford's. trust me you won't regret it.</p>

<p>I don't know how feasible this is for you, but you could go early to one and spend thursday and friday, travel on saturday to the other, and stay late and stay until monday at the second one. I'm sure both universities would accommodate you for an extra night</p>

<p>Assuming you can miss school...</p>

<p>I'd go to Stanford 4/22 - 4/25 and then Harvard 4/25 - 4/28. That way you'll get a feel for both campuses with and without the prefrosh pageantry. You'll also be able to check out classes + all that. The admissions offices shouldn't have any problem finding you a place to stay for those dates.</p>

<p>(oops - just realized that this is what goolsci said)</p>

<p>There are only so many weekends in April compared to the many top notch schools....</p>

<p>Here's what I'm doing:</p>

<p>Harvard classes 4/10 afternoon while at MIT's CPW
MIT CPW 4/10 evening - 4/13 morning
Stanford AW 23 night - 25 evening
Harvard VP 26 morning - 27 afternoon</p>

<p>chronical, that's a really good idea to go to Harvard classes over CPW</p>

<p>I'm going to be at MIT CPW also, and have to miss the first day (Friday) of Harvard's admit weekend. I might go spend some time at Harvard while at CPW!</p>
