If you can't visit a certain school, a good idea is to log onto the livejournal community for that school. you can post questions for the students, or just see what they're like.

how do you look for livejournals of a certain school? i dont get it.

By Mochaweb85 (Mochaweb85) on Saturday, February 21, 2004 - 11:22 pm: Edit

for Livejournals.. do a search of the school by communities I think.

For xangas.. search the name of the school thru blogrings..

ahh! I've done that!

Local communities are also a great way to find out about restaurants/events in places you're visiting. The beantownkids community recommended some great places to eat around Cambridge when I was visiting Boston.

Also epinions.com gives reviews on colleges and universities, as well as studentsreview.com

This is a very helpful post.

you can't search xangas unless you pay for it.

Yeah, I think Epinions and Students Review are the best sites for researching a college.

I write for opinions for epinions (last year they even gave me a $20 bonus..shock)..I never knew they had college reviews there.
GREAT IDEA! Thanks!

You got a bonus? Cool. I think my balance is up to like 57 cents or something lol.

By Polly (Polly) on Tuesday, March 02, 2004 - 05:22 am: Edit

No, for xanga, you can go to "blogrings" http://www.xanga.com/blogrings/ and search the school you'd like to know about.
