Campus Visit Notes for Princeton University
Probably the only thing that was confusing was the attempt to explain the eating clubs at Princeton...but that can all be figured out later.
Truely a wonderful campus to be seen by those who have the opportunity and are really competative for admittance.
Also, admissions officer went out of his way to explain that money would never be a reason not to attend Princeton...those admitted always have wonderful financial aid packets if aid is needed.
