Larger cities = longer visits?

Postby InquilineKea » Sat Dec 24, 2011 7:42 pm

Does it make sense to visit schools somewhat longer if they're located in a large city, so that one could get a better "feel" of the city before deciding if it is right for them?

Why not? It's your visit, do whatever you need to to decide whether it's right for you. I did this when I visited Amsterdam after getting accepted, two nights isn't enough for that city! :D

Usually what happens is the department will pay for your airfare/ hotel/ expenses/ etc during the official stay, and anything extra such as additional days will be out of pocket.

Ah cool - I see. :) The extra days won't be a problem now thanks to Airbnb. =)

(also people are pretty liberal with CouchSurfing on Reddit too)
