You know the routine. You review the US News and Reports on top colleges. You check the SAT and ACT scores of a school. You do your research by visiting the school’s website. You visit the school and take the obligatory tour. You apply and get accepted. One year into your investment you realize, “this school sucks!”
There is a new community coming online that allows you to check out the school from the student body’s perspective. I am not sure if anything out there is similar to this but I would have loved to this when I was attending school. It is still in beta so content is at a minimum but it is definitely something to keep track of.
