I’m a data vacuum, so I thought it would be helpful to post some basic places I like to get info.
I follow a number of admissions folks on social media and blogs…
I like Jeff Selingo for his years of knowledge, insider sources, and he is a good writer. His latest book is interesting too. Bio Twitter There are a lot of others on twitter that I’ve discovered through him, but they’re kind of hit or miss.
GT and UGA admissions deans do a great job of talking about the process on social media and their blogs. They both come off sincere and understand how stressed the kids are. UGA Blog GT Blog
UVA’s admissions dean has a good blog, is active on twitter, and is a regular on the UVA sub forum here on CC. She is so on it! Very impressive. UVA Blog Twitter
I love College Scorecard for researching majors and income. The income data comes straight from the tax returns of former students who receive federal aid or loans. Still a bit limited because it doesn’t pull from all grads, but the solid data makes up for it.
I’ll try to add some more as I remember them.
