My Daily Reading

What do I read to stay up to date with the fast-paced and ever-changing world of college admissions?

Here's a list of my subscriptions:
  • Christian Science Monitor: learning section of the newspaper
  • Jay Mathews, Education writer for Washington Post
  • Boston Globe's Education section
  • Fiske Guides Blog
  • Wall Street Journal's ""
  • New York Times' Education section
  • New York Times' The Choice college blog
  • Harvard Graduate School of Education: research and news
  • Lipman Hearne, a college marketing group
  • I also like to read other college counselors' blogs. The Beacon School in NYC is a good one, as is College Counseling Culture, authored by a former Amherst admissions rep who is now a high school counselor.

Traditional paper subscriptions that I read:
  1. The Lawlor Review. In-depth reports on trends in admissions
  2. College Bound News. News briefs from around the country regarding college admissions and financial aid trends.
  3. National Association for College Admissions Counseling
  4. New England Association for College Admissions Counseling
I follow even more organizations on Twitter:
  • New England Board of Higher Education
  • Campus Buzz (news from dozens of colleges)
  • Harvard Graduate School of Education
  • Inside Higher Education
  • College Prowler
  • USA Today College
  • Huff Post College
  • Fastweb Scholarships
  • Zinch
  • Federal Student Aid
  • Colleges That Change Lives
