Some of you on College Confidential may have noticed that there is a large internet forum out there called “Reddit”. On that forum is a discussion board called ApplyingToCollege. There is a bit of an… ahem… rivalry between our sites and the tone and culture of the sites seem very different. Some of the main comparisons:
|Category||College Confidential||Reddit r/ApplyingToCollege|
|Rules||CC Site-wide Rules||A2C Rules|
|Mods||Community Moderated (12 for all of CC)||Community Moderated (10 for A2C)|
|Threads||Single-level Threads||Multi-level (Nested) Threads|
|Categories||School and Subject Categories||School and Subject Subreddits|
|Images||Posting allowed (waiting period)||Posting allowed after sign up(no wait)|
|Most used word||stats?||bruh|
(ok that last one was a joke)
We think there’s room on the internet for both of us, but we’d genuinely like your opinion on a few things:
What does /r/A2C do well?
What does CC do well?
Is there anything you wished CC did like Reddit? or vice versa?
Remember to keep the discussion civil. This is not a place to bash either site, but to give constructive criticism about how we can best serve our users and provide awesome places for college admissions discussions.
