How to benefit from attending a conference

Updated: Jun 2, 2021

Attending a conference and connecting with health profession school admissions folks is a very strategic way to 1. learn more about a school before adding it to your list 2. Put your name in front of their face 3. Have a justification for reaching out later (to thank them). When you are in the application process, you want to attend as many events as possible where admissions folks will be. This should be part of your strategy.

Go into a room prepared with good questions. Look professional. Leave your camera on and engage with them. Make a connection. Take their name. Then email them after your app is complete, thanking them for the conversation and let them know your app is complete. Be sure to include your application ID # to make it easy for them to look you up!
