First, some college humor that circulated through our Collegewise inboxes this morning: I love a good college rivalry, and Harvard and Yale take it to great levels. It’s hard not to appreciate two of the most selective schools in the universe trading biting insults, like these Harvard students having some fun at Yale’s expense.
Now, for the advice.
When you tour a college with a (real) tour guide, try really hard not to judge the school too much (positively or negatively) by the guide. Some tour guides are great; others, not so much. And no matter who your guide is, he or she is just one person, someone you may never speak to again even if you end up attending the college. Don't think of the guide as a representation of the entire school. Instead, use the tour and the guide’s knowledge as a way to learn things you want to know. Here’s a past post with some guidelines.
