T14s, Minority Student Days, Statistics, and You
« on: April 15, 2006, 09:35:48 AM »
For those of you who attend, applied to, or will attend a top-14 school, I'm curious to know whether your school (which school?) had a Minority Admitted Students Days of any sort.  I'm also curious to know what the schedule was like, and whether this had any impact (good or bad) on your decision-making process.  Lastly, I'd be interested in knowing the racial/ethnic breakdown of your school.  Thanks!

No one has any opinion?  At all?

What about if you were to attend one of these, what sort of programs / events would you be looking for?

Went to one at Stanford.  Was cool overall but ended up being duplicated throughout the remainder of the weekend.  Also unfortunately ossified the minority students as one group making it harder to branch out and make friends with the other admits (because we were already secure with each other and had formed bonds and our own internal jokes/references/plans).

Went to an informal one of sorts at Harvard.  It helped a ton to see what the minority community was about, how tight knit they were, what their resources were, and meet other minority applicants that I have remained good friends with.

They have their plusses and minuses.  Overall they weren't bad.
