College Tour '10 resumes (with links)
For rising high school seniors, the frenzied college admissions season is about to begin -- if it hasn't already.
Many students are taking time this summer to visit college and university campuses, and to write essays for their college applications. A preview of the entire 2010-11 Common Application is available on line for those students who refuse to relax this summer.
We have a map of the United States here, with links to various schools around the country. If you click on a school, you will go to a write-up about that school from a teenager or a parent who visited this year (many of them during spring break) and then wrote about his or her impressions.
We are interested in your experiences, too. I will publish here each post sent to me and add it to the map.
Keep each post to one school (I’m happy to get multiple posts from the same person), and try to answer a question, or questions, that you would want answered.
It is fine to write about a school that is already on the map; no two impressions are exactly the same. I won’t publish your names but I need your identification and a way to contact you. Also please tell me if you are a student or a parent. Send your posts to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here are the posts, with links, that we have so far:
Penn State University
University of Southern California
St. Mary’s College
Virginia Tech University
Washington University in St. Louis
University of Michigan
University of Pennsylvania
University of Miami
New York University
College of William & Mary
College of Wooster
