Meeting school recruiters in person offers several benefits:

Personal Connection

There will be opportunities to mix and mingle with recruiters at scheduled social events, allowing your personality to shine through in a more casual atmosphere.

Immediate Feedback

Both parties can give and receive immediate feedback, allowing for a more dynamic and interactive interview experience.
