COLLEGE ADMISSIONS TEAMS TAKE A PEEK AT SOCIAL MEDIA WHEN MAKING ADMISSIONS DECISIONS
The social media frenzy does not seem to be going away, with millions of Facebook and Instagram users. For many teen and young adults, this form of communication is all they have ever known. Aside from issues of cyber bullying and posting embarrassing photos, there are other things to consider when hopping on your social media accounts. One very important issue to take note of is getting into college. Many students are surprised to learn the admissions team has taken a glance at what an application posted online, and in some instances the posts can lead to a denial of admission or being placed on probation. A good rule of thumb is to avoid posts that are questionable, and keep your privacy settings such that you cannot be tagged in photos or location check-ins without approval.
