Pennsylvania State / Joint Degrees
« on: June 08, 2007, 11:06:06 AM »
There seems to be little info on the DSL web site about the logistics of doing a joint degree program. Can anyone tell me more about how these work? Can you count a large number of courses towards both degrees? I'm particularly interested in the M.P.A. program.

Pennsylvania State / Class of 2010

So it doesn't appear that many people actually use this thread, but I figured I'd give it a try anyway. I sent in my deposit last week - I will be starting at the Carlisle campus in the fall. Are there any others on here who know they'll be going to Penn State - Dickinson?

Reviews, Visits, and Rankings / OCI statistics

Where can I find how many firms/agencies participate in on-campus recruiting at a particular school? I know it's sometimes listed on princetonreview.com, but for some schools, it's not. Is there another source, short of asking the career development offices?

I am married, and one of my schools asked that I not bring my husband with me to a scholarship recipients' dinner. I kinda feel like that's bad etiquette on their part. I know it's expensive to feed a lot of people, but surely they can afford it. Is this a common response? To me, it makes the school seem much less family-friendly...

Affirmative Action / Recommended Reading
« on: January 01, 2007, 04:39:44 PM »
This has always been an interesting topic to me, and it's clearly one that matters to a lot of people. I've enjoyed reading everyone's feelings on this. I am currently an undergraduate admission counselor at a small college, so I have perhaps a different perspective than some. There's a great book called "Leveling the Playing Field: Justice and Politics in College Admissions" that I would really recommend to anyone who wants to learn more about affirmative action and what "merit" actually means.
