I loved this post, it was so helpful when I was in the midst of writing dozens of essays and still trying to keep up with school...what a stressful time in our lives, huh? this highlights why it would be a dream come true to go to princeton, but for now, with a >10% acceptance rate, i probably should just focus on not getting my hopes up : /
Yeah, the Whitman dorms are nice, but the other ones.... Though if you get a really good room draw you can get an awesome room in a tower or something. I think there's even a 14 person suite right over Blair arch!
Anyone know if visiting students can still stay with Princeton students? I didn't see anything about it on the visiting section of the admissions website, but perhaps I'm not looking in the right place?
admitted students are hosted by current princeton students. There is no program set up (nor has there been in the recent past) to allow students who are just visiting (ie juniors looking at college) to stay with current students. There would just be too many people, since 20,000 people applied to princeton this year. Recruited atheletes stay with team members during their visits, and iif you can find someone to let you stay in their room then you're welcome to stya, but the admissions office is not involved.
I'm admitted. I'm not totally set on staying overnight with a student, but I really need to visit soon and sleeping somewhere overnight would be much nicer than driving up 4 hours in the morning and then driving back 4 hours the same night.
