After months and months of learning new vocabulary words, memorizing math formulas, or practicing responses for different questions, you’re finally only a couple of days away from presenting your s…
It’s the week before the SAT; here’s what to do!
Hey hey hey guys!
It’s the time of the year when we need to think about thanking our teachers for being the amazing human beings they are.
These cute, academic gift ideas work as Christmas presents, “thank you for writing my college recommendation” presents, or just “you are the best” presents.
1. Start today. Even if it’s weeks until the exam, write down the date, and how many days you have. Don’t live in denial – that date will come around!
2. Just do it. The hardest part is always getting started on revision. So don’t give in to delay tactics. If you don’t know what to study, just…
There are usually different ways in which you can find out the personality of a certain college without visiting it and seeing if you like it or if it offers the opportunities you want.
1. Go to a informational presentation offered by the school. A lot of schools may either visit your school or host presentations in your city during college application season.
2. Visit the website of the college: you can find a great deal of information as too what majors the school offers and what sort of programs it has and how good they are (study abroad, internship, career offices).
3. If you receive any, read the mail you get from the college. Schools like Columbia mail people entire books about their college. A thorough read can supply enough knowledge to know the workings of how the college works, the academic structure of the school, and the student life there, even how to get a discount on pizza at that student-run cafe on the south campus.
4. Surf college forums online and talk to friends in college or adults you know (teachers, counselors, family friends) about the personalities of a particular school so you can get a feel about the general personality of it. Use common sense and don’t be irrationally swayed by one person’s opinion or a particular stereotype. e.g. Fun doesn’t really die at UChicago, Berkeley is not necessarily always crazy and rioty, and you can be a normal, conservative person at Swarthmore.
5. Apply to the college! You can actually get a pretty good grasp as to the personality of the college based on the supplemental essays they want you to write (unless they dont have unique supplemental essays e.g. the UC’s, WashU). Plus, writing a particularly good supplemental essay for a college also proves that you are a good fit for the personality of the college so it comes hand in hand.
Frankly, I have never visited the college I’m going to attend in the fall and I was able to make my decision just from the steps above.

This post made me happy *nerd*
Happy thanksgiving guys! So if you remember (or not, I’m really not that interesting) exactly a week ago I had my Yale interview. It was great and all that, but what was really nice was the information my interviewer shared with me about his job in the process. And so, since I’m thankful not only…
