“Second Visit” or “Second Look” days are great opportunities to revisit the medical schools that you are truly interested in. This time you will be more seriously evaluating what each medical school has to offer you, what makes it unique, and whether it is the right “fit” for you. Since you are no longer being evaluated, this visit should be much more relaxed and you can evaluate the school through different eyes. This visit may be a good time to bring your parents, spouse, or significant other to have them help you evaluate your options. Dress comfortably and leave your suit at home, but be sure to check to see if there is a particular dress code for different events that you might be attending.
