On the issue of college/university lists, just about the only recent change I actually welcomed was the relocation of the Ivy League List to the bottom of the page.
Hobsons has also monetized the site's popularity. About 700 colleges advertise here. Look, there's a banner ad for the University of Alabama, and one for Full Sail University. There's more: "At College Confidential we can tailor a custom exposure program to meet your needs," says the site. Colleges may sponsor a discussion forum ($800 a month) or advertise on the mobile application ($1,500 a month). Geo-targeting and retargeting are also options ($600 for 50,000 impressions). A student who visits a forum on visual and performing arts will surely see ads from colleges promoting such programs.
Plus the fact that having everything in bold prevents one from providing emphasis, which is what the original intent of the bold was.
...now that users have discovered colors...please don’t test them all out here.
I would vote for just having ALL colleges listed in the list if colleges...and no separate sections for “special” schools.
t seems schools could “sponsor” a discussion forum for $800
