Princeton University Visit Report by purplegirl
Information Session: Yes - Very crowded. Adcom was very intimidating. Kept reinforcing how competitive it is to get in. That they get 20,000 applications and the applicant has to have a hook.
Campus Tour: Yes - Very crowded. At least 120 people on tour with each guide. More like a museum tour. Did not see dorms, or classrooms, just outside of historic buildings
Campus Visit Notes for Princeton University
Felt that the Princeton tour was more what the student could do for Princeton rather than what they could do for you. Had always thought I wanted to go to Princeton but I found the whole afternoon very intimidating.
Hotel/Lodging Recommendations or Comments:
Drove for the day.
Other Comments (Transportation, local attractions, parking, etc.):
Parking was hard to find. They directed my dad to some garage that was a long way back to tour meeting place.
