Is showing interest really important?

<p>I heard that Princeton (or most schools) do take note if you've visited the campus, etc.</p>

<p>I'm planning on visiting Princeton, but does it really matter? Does showing interest count in admissions, since Princeton is a super selective school? And does anyone know if campus visits will matter at other top schools?</p>

<p>No one in the admissions office will ever know you visited, so no.</p>

<p>why should princeton care? they have one of the highest yield rates in the country. only second rate schools care about factors like this.</p>

<p>HYPS don't care at all</p>

<p>sorry but when you go on a tour they only want your zip name or otherwise personally indentifying information will be processed.</p>

<p>Actually, when I visited, they asked everyone to fill out a form with name, address, school, and academic and extracurricular interests. I doubt they really pay attention to it, though.</p>

<p>sometimes the interviewers ask you and may put it in thier letter or someting, but no one cares.</p>

<p>I didn't even give away my ZIP code.</p>

<p>cameliasinensis, that's weird I went twice and they never gave those out</p>
