Question Program invited me for 2nd visit

Hi,

I just got an email from a program, inviting me to come back for a second visit. I am excited because this is a program that I am really interested in. But, I would like to know if/what this invite actually means? Do they invite people they are interested in? Do they rank people who show up, higher on the Rank order list?
Any insight would be appreciated. Thank you.

2nd look is about you ranking them high not them ranking you high.

#2
if you didn't ask and they told you to come, it can be good or bad.

situation 1: they not sure about you, want to test you.

situation 2: they like you , and want to show you more.

#3
refer to #1

I think you can take advantage in a second visit. Maybe they want to choose between you and another person and it will depend of your second change. So, go ahead! Convince them! And pls reply when you figure out after your visit.

Good luck!

Hopefully it won't be an economic burden on you, but NOWs your chance. Be super honest, sincere and genuine.
