Everything counts in the campus visit
The Boston Globe - 06/11/2015
William Fitzsimmons, Harvard’s dean of admissions and financial aid, is expecting about 40,000 prospective students and family members to register for tours of its campus this year — more than twice as many as a decade ago. More than 70,000 visitors attended Boston University information sessions and tours in 2014, a 33 percent increase from five years ago. Over 80,000 visitors checked out Northeastern University in 2014, up from 56,000 five years earlier. In Medford, 8,187 prospective students and parents toured Tufts University in the busy month of July 2014, up from 6,825 the previous July. UMass Amherst, which does not separate out visits by accepted students from those considering applying, had almost 46,000 registered visitors in the 2013-2014 academic year, up from 35,866 in 2010-2011.
