Insights from Admissions Blogs

Wednesday, April 28th, 2010

One of the most effective and entertaining ways to gain insight into the admissions process of a particular college is to read the admissions blog.   Many admissions deans and staff members post about the process at their respective schools, providing readers with unique, inside information.  My favorite blog is written by Jeannine C. Lalonde, senior assistant dean of admission at the University of Virginia.  Titled “Notes from Peabody,”  Ms. Lalonde provides a humorous yet revealing look at how UVA evaluates applicants,  featuring her adorable golden retriever, Baxter, alias “CavDog.”   Check out the following link, and explore the many other admissions blogs.  They will hopefully help demystify the admissions process a bit and also help you to determine if a school is a good fit for you.
