Forget about reading the NY Times article and go straight to www.unigo.com and check it out. It seems like THE place to read student reviews of colleges – and I mean LOTS of reviews (and in this case, “more is more).
So I have been there and done a lot of the tour… and I like it!
I looked for all the colleges I’ve visited and the majority were there – and I have to say that I agreed with most of the students/reviewers… My impressions were similar.
I love the online resource with students sharing their thoughts. The beauty of the concept is that you can hear (really read and see) lots of viewpoints… You just need to remember that it’s the folks who know about the site and feel most passionately about their schools who are writing about them – the good, the bad and the ugly.
Knowledge is power and unigo.com gives you more of both. Nothing surpasses visiting the schools, yet if you want a thumbnail sketch from some folks in the know before you head out the door, take a look at the site.
PS: I’m hoping that more colleges/universities show up on the site… as Clark University/my alma mater isn’t there… and there’s a lot to say about it!
