There are a variety of resources available to help students in the search for the right college. One of the resources I have not talked about before are the blogs of students who have just been through the college admissions process. Although there are limits to any resource, the student blogs provides a different prospective than that provided by professional college counselors like myself.
Among the better student blogs is The College Student Blog, written by Parker, a student at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. This blog is fairly new but many of the entries I have seen would be helpful for students in the college search process.
