Don’t forget also that Purdue has that amazing job fair!
I told my son to treat each school that he is interested in as if they did view demonstrated interested as important. Don’t question it after it is all done.
He went to purdue last week to do a personal tour. He met some friends he knows there and they had some of their friends there. Some from the Honors school and Dorms so he got to tour those. I guess they were expecting good size groups of people touring. They had Students and Professors at tables in the college of engineering answering questions.
When he arrived on campus he got a text shortly later “Welcome to the Family, Boiler Up”. He said “I guess they do watch what you’re doing.”.
