Connections

Hello, i'm an imcoming junior and have recieved some connection requests from a couple of schools. How does this work? Do I text them first? Do they text me? Do we talk at all? Thank you!!

Heey! So I've only recently used the connections request. So the school's admin will reach out with like a general message, and depending on if you like the school, you can accept or ignore it. I accepted one and it gives you an option to chat with the admissions office, so you can ask any questions you may have. I have done this and gotten a response from the admissions rep. But I've heard that others haven't, so I think it depends on the school, sometimes it's automated sometimes it's not. It's a lot of flaws but it doesn't hurt to try.

I am really not sure if the system actually works...I have not personally used it, I have declined all the connection requests. But i have heard from other students on here that the system does not seem to work well. I recommend first looking up the school to see if they even have what you're interested in. If not, don't go through all that trouble. Focus on connections that matter.
