When Admissions Blogs

Vassar Admissions is now getting in on the blogging action. "Want to know what a couple of Vassar students find interesting, find boring, are afraid of, are looking forward to, did over spring break, think about, believe in, find amusing? Read the blogs," reads the site.

The page features student blogs written by Jamie Rosen '08, Brian Farkas '10, and Brooke Skinner '08. CLICK HERE to check them out.

what qualifies brooke to have a blog? not that it's not interesting but the other two seem like big-shot leaders, she's more average

what does that mean? you can't be "average" and come to vassar? not everyone has to be freakishly different here. brooke is awesome so stop sippin' on the haterade.

9:32, i agree with your entire comment AND with your use of the term "haterade." big ups.

i don't think we should be advertising the "average" kids, we should be advertising the student leaders and award-winners. why doesn't the vsa president have a blog? or the captain of the men's baseball team? those are the kids we should show off.

if i read farkas' blog and saw his smirking face i would have run into the comforting arms of a second rate community college before coming here. pity i didn't.

jamie and farkas's blogs are really well-written. and a good representation of two really crucial student activities. the third blog just seems pretty out of place

i don't think having an "average" blog is at all out of place. do you really want vassar to be represented only as a school of raging liberals and extraordinary people who spend their free time doing things only a small percent of the actual population partake in? Sure let's highlight our exceptional students that set awesome examples, but let's not make everyone else feel inadequate by only supporting that image. nothing wrong with representing other groups as well. i know i'd be intimated to attend a school that didn't.
