Today we visited the last college on a marathon week-long visit trip. I pretty much liked all of the colleges we saw. They’re all small liberal arts colleges in the Northeast, with flexible course requirements and a big emphasis on the faculty-student relationship. I could see myself at one of them more so than the others, but they’re all very hard to get into, so I’ll skip the name-dropping in case they are reading this. (Would you accept a student who said you weren’t his first choice?)
The college search is a very long and arduous process, but I think I’m well on my way. I’m almost done with my Common Application, although now I think I may change my topic. (Damn you, vacillating mind!) I have my recommendations lined up, and one of them is confirmed. I have my SAT IIs done, and I will take the regular SAT again to make sure I’ve gotten the most out of the test. I may take the ACT, just because I have been told I’d do well on it.
Here’s a list of the colleges I saw this week:
Monday – Drew University
Tuesday – University of Rochester
Wednesday – Hamilton College
Thursday – Skidmore College
Friday – Brandeis University
Also, who knew that there were so many colleges on Twitter?
