Trista’s Tips: Making the Most of a Business School Fair

We’re in the midst of travel season here at Simon, and because we are meeting several times per week with prospective students domestically and abroad, we thought the timing would be right to offer some advice for maximizing your time at a graduate business school fair. Trista Wesley, assistant director of admissions and one of our staff member who you might meet out on the road, breaks down how to prepare for and make the best impression during your next fair.
