NEW: GET SCHOOLED: THE BEST QUESTIONS TO ASK CURRENT STUDENTS AT COLLEGES YOU'RE CONSIDERING
As you research colleges, you'll find that most colleges know how to make their campus look and sound amazing on paper. The common spiel right now goes something like this: We have top academic programs, dedicated professors, and a commitment to safe and accessible learning during COVID-19! Love it - but what is it really like being a student at that college?

If you’re the kind of person who likes to hear things from the source - your best bet is chatting with current students at colleges you’re considering. Get Schooled has you covered with this list of questions and ways to get in touch with current students at the post-secondary institutions on your list.
