For your Reading Pleasure

There has been an awful lot of press relating to Admissions in the last couple of weeks, obviously related to the application season. So here are a few that I found.

The Boston Globe has had a few good posts in the last couple of weeks, they have become a pretty good place to find admissions related articles. The only thing is, although they are very good reads, they tend always seem to interview some pretty hard hitting schools, (Harvard, MIT, Tufts) not exactly your best sample if you want to get an overall picture of College Admissions, that's my take anyway.

College hopefuls try the Creative approach - Boston Globe : What are some of your most creative "bribes" as you will?

Maryland Governor "promises" to freeze tuition at Maryland State Schools. We'll see....

Midwest Applications Soar: According to the Chicago Sun Times applications are up everywhere in the Midwest, what a shock! Have these writers been living under a rock the last few years?? There was a good quote in there from Notre Dame's Dan Saracino: "It's nice to be up in applications, but you're not sure how serious students are, It (common app.) makes it so easy to apply, they may just be fishing"

Enjoy...
