I know Bowdoin offers Fly back programs for select students. Which other schools do as well? (Kenyon did too, but it conflicts with the Bowdoin trip which I really do want to go to)

I believe Oberlin does as well.

Most fly-in programs are taking place now as they would like prople to consider them for ED. I don't know if you are looking for this year or next but these are the ones that I know about.
Williams does, however I believe it took place this past weekend.
Bryn Mawr does as part of its Mosaic (I believe it has passed also.
Amherst does as Part of its SOCOH (Students of Color Open House Weekend). You have ot apply for a spot (deadline has passed, people have been selected)
Dartmouth does, Destination Dartmouth- you must apply for a spot (takes place over the summer)
Tufts has the Telescope program (I don't know if they pay to fly you in)

Last year my son was offered fly back programs at Duke and Dartmouth in the Spring, regular admissions.

Dartmouth flyback program in the spring "Dimensions at Dartmouth" is for admitted RD students. OP may be looking for programs for prospective students.

My daughter just returned from the Mosaic weekend at Bryn Mawr. She had a wonderful time. Saturday they went to Philadelphia for the day (South Street shops, historic homes, ethnic meal). Sunday there was a leadership conference, and Monday she had an interview and visited two classes. She had a very good time.

I am glad that your daughter had a wonderful time at Bryn Mawr. Jennifer Rickard and her staff are really excellent and they take such wonderful care of the young women there. When my daughter went last year she also had a great time and it really helped to change her perception of Womens College to the point that she did apply.
To OP, Dartmouth may be having something on campus now for prospective students as D and roommate are currently hosting a student.

"Fly back programs for select students..."
I guess my daughter's not so select; she just got offered a trip to Cornell by BUS! :-)

It depends on how far you are from the school. Usaually if you are from the tri-state area, NY, NY,Conn they will bus you in.
We live in NYC, daughter applied to all NE schools so there was no flying for us- road trips all the way.

Sybbie, We're in Maryland. But it's fine--I was laughing about the bus vs. plane offer.
