You can read students’ perspectives about dozens of colleges – including MIT, Amherst, Bates, Carleton, Colby, Haverford, Johns Hopkins, Oberlin, Vassar, Wellesley and and Yale — by checking out student blogs on the schools’ web sites.
Student blogs are a valuable tool for prospective applicants seeking “behind-the-scenes” information about admission and student life.
Many high school juniors and seniors follow the blogs at the colleges they interest them. Blogger write about a potpourri of topics — admission, clubs, activities, athletics, social life, summer jobs, classes, academic work load, travel, weather, daily life and much more.
MIT’s site contains twelve student and four admissions & financial aid staff member blogs. Click here to check out MIT’s site.
