Why College Confidential Works

Last year I was asked to represent the University of Rochester on College Confidential, a website dedicated to the college search process.  It was explained to me that my primary responsibility would be to participate in the College Confidential discussion boards, a responsibility that I accepted somewhat reluctantly.  Like many of my colleagues, I feared[…]
