Here is an excerpt from a new story on time online regarding how college admissions officers not only rely on your SAT/ACT scores, GPA and essays now they are looking at your Facebook profiles. I believe my two had to have a college email account to join facebook. Times they are a changing!
What do you think about this? I know my youngest while on the football team was sent to a seminar on the importance of guarding his account for anything that would could potentially be viewed as a detriment to himself, the team, or university.
What happens if your mother has a weird facebook account...:smileysurprised: how far does this look go? Not pertinent because they don't judge legacies? What happened to the don't judge a book by its cover?
We all know that employers check out your online persona, but the trend is spreading. Now your dirty laundry on the Internet could keep you out of college, too.
A new survey from Kaplan Test Prep reveals that 82 percent of admissions officers use Facebook in their recruiting. While this sounds like a positive spin on having an online presence - meaning the college of your dreams can see your interests and your favorite books. And maybe yours jive perfectly with that of the college's dream student.
