Is reaching out to AdComs before you apply a good idea?

For context, I'm still working on locking in a GMAT score but I've got an overall solid profile and story despite being ORM and I just want AdComs to know I'm extremely interested in the program already even though I'll only apply by R2. I'm not sure how good a score I can churn out with limited time at hand but does anyone have any experience with reaching out to AdComs? (Specifically CBS, Tuck and Kellogg)

I think if you have a natural way to do so it couldn’t hurt! I attended a small group info session run by the director of admissions for one of my top schools and sent them an email afterwards just saying “thanks so much for running the session, I’m really excited to apply R2, please keep an eye out for my application in January etc.”

Have an admit at Columbia and received 30K in aid each year, so I anticipate paying 110K in tuition. With cost of living in upper Manhattan, estimating an additional 35K each year, so 180K total cost.

I want to stay in tech post MBA, but explore faang companies and product roles. Is this worth the cost? I figure I could make a jump in comp at least?
