Legal defense fund Project on Fair Representation launched a site earlier this month to seek students who claimed they were not admitted to Harvard because of their race, for a possible lawsuit against the University.
The College Board has recently released details of a new, revised, and, potentially, improved SAT. In a horrendously long and frightfully dull 211-page PDF file, the College Board divulged details of the upcoming SAT that will be introduced to the stressful, acne-prone, nail-biting world of college hopefuls in the spring of 2016.
Stanford accepted a record low number of applicants this year. What does this mean for Harvard?
Even if it isn’t the weather, make out parties, or chances of becoming a reality TV star that is drawing students to the west coast school, something about Stanford’s popularity is definitely on the rise.
To help prefrosh prepare for this year’s festivities, we’ve put together a list of things to put on or take off of your packing list for this weekend of campus exploration.

Around 1,700 students graduate from Harvard College this year. Should this number be higher?
In light of the rising rate of rejections and the increasing number of extremely qualified applicants in an admissions pool, the inevitable question has arisen: should elite schools like Harvard increase class sizes in order to accommodate these changes? Unfortunately, though, this approach is far from practical and would only hurt the student body overall.
Students scramble to get rid of their social media accounts before admissions decisions, perhaps to no avail.
As a college applicant, I pulled out all the stops to hose down my social media presence. I deactivated my Facebook, deleted my Twitter account and (empty) YouTube channel, and combed my blog for expletives, painstakingly removing each one. I was convinced—or at least my over-supportive and over-anxious mother was convinced—that each instance of rebellious behavior would assure admissions officers of my poor moral character.
You may accept your position on the waitlist and develop a plan of action, but in the meantime, celebrate the schools you did get into. You’re going to college. That’s a huge achievement that many of us take for granted, and is something that not everyone gets to say.
