Would attending a fly-in program raise my chances of getting into a college?

Recently received an invitation to apply to a virtual fly-in program. Should I partake in it or will it not be worth my time?

What school is that as if they track interest as determined by googling insert school common data set and then going to section C and see if interest shown is marked as considered. Also if the school has a 80% acceptance rate you don’t need a boost.

Also is that school a top 3 school as a fly-in can determine if it’s a school you’ll live or just okay. Also if the cost is an issue most prestigious schools have aid available but there are also cheaper ways like attending live-streams emailing admissions if the campus has tours just doing a tour.

TLDR It would boost chances if they track interest. But there are other options to show interest.

Hope this helps and please comment if you need clarification as I’d be happy to help clarify!
