Telling It Like It Is

We’ve always been impressed by colleges who aren’t afraid to come right out and say, "We aren’t for everybody."  We think kids deserve honest answers about what their life at each college would actually be like, but it’s often hard to get those answers from the slick brochures and flashy websites.  Student blogs, however, are a different story.  They’ll tell it like it is.  And according to this article, one quarter of college admissions offices now offer blogs written by students or admissions personnel, and the vast majority of those blogs are largely uncensored.   What a great way to give prospective students a sense of what it’s actually like to be there.
