    Sounds like it's time for a round of "College Tour Bingo."

    I never did get the logic of the blue light thing -- they all seem to be few and far between, and inconveniently located. I've read that some schools are phasing them out.

    @moooop , which one are you in your profile picture? I'm guessing the dad, but I wouldn't want to insult the dog.

    Talking about study abroad is great marketing! Students (perhaps less so parents) only imagine the positives when they think of themselves sophisticatedly sipping wine in a park in the shadow of the Eiffel Tower. Much more impressive than the grimy reality of even the nicest college campus, with its ugly non-French people.

    D18 got quite a surprise when we stopped by NYU London on a trip over there. I had done a Google Street view so I sort of knew what to expect. It was one of those, "Google Maps says it's right here???", moments.
