Frequently Asked Questions
Please note that our policies may shift slightly year to year. This guide is meant
to help you better understand the general logistics of our tour.
What colleges are included on the Magic in the Metroplex tour?
Austin College, Southern Methodist University, Texas Christian University and the
University of Dallas are excited to show you our campuses during this event.
When is Magic in the Metroplex tour scheduled for?
The dates for the spring 2021 tour are coming soon! We typically hold this event in
late February or early March.
What is the structure of the tour?
Our tentative structure for the event includes check in on Sunday afternoon, two campus
tours on Monday, two campus tours on Tuesday and a concluding breakfast with enrollment
leaders from each institution on Wednesday morning.
Can I leave early or arrive late for the tour?
No, if you are selected to attend the tour, you are expected to be present for the
entirety of the program. (no exceptions)
What is covered by the tour? What is not covered by the tour?
We will reimburse up to $350 in travel expenses (flights, mileage, etc.) We will also
cover the cost for you to stay in a hotel. This coverage is based on double occupancy
- we will pair you with a roommate. We typically allow participants to request single
rooms for an additional charge. These additional charges vary by year, but are usually
around $120/night + taxes. These charges will be billed directly to you, if you opt
into a single room accommodation. While we will provide most meals for you, we typically
have one dinner “on your own” in the city that we do not cover.
How does the invitation process work?
We can host 55 counselors each year. We typically have over 700-800 inquiries each
year. We do not extend an invitation to every inquiry. We will extend invitations
to a select group from the inquiry pool, and since we know not everyone we invite
will say yes, we typically invite more than 55 people. If you are selected for invitation,
you can either fill a slot in the program or secure a spot on the waitlist. Slots
will be filled by invited counselors on a first-come, first-served basis. If you are
not selected to receive an invitation, you will be notified and asked to reinquire
for the following year.
Who should I contact if I have questions about the tour?
You can reach out to Sarah Hossain, Assistant Director of Undergraduate Admission
at Austin College. Her email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
