College Blogs Offer Admission Advice & More

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.
