1:18 am BMEdegreeGIRL: I would be applying as a freshman #CampusChat
1:18 am IvyEyesEditing: Any tips for transfer applicants? @WCUadmission #campuschat
1:18 am WCUadmission: I always encourage students and their parents to call/email if you have any questions about the institution or process. #CampusChat
1:18 am SuzanneShaffer: @BMEdegreeGIRL It’s never rude to ask for an interview #campuschat
1:19 am WCUadmission: @BMEdegreeGIRL It never hurts to ask! All schools have different policies. We don’t require interviews. #CampusChat

1:25 am WCUadmission: We do offer applicants to check their app status online so that cuts back on the calls we used to receive. Many schools do this. #CampusChat
1:25 am collegevisit: What’s the strangest question a visitor has asked @WCU? #campuschat

1:28 am IvyEyesEditing: RT @WCUadmission: @IvyEyesEditing We are not on the common application. Students can apply through CFNC (College Foundation of NC) #CampusChat

1:33 am BMEdegreeGIRL: @WCUadmission Wow, great I will do it. Thanks #CampusChat
1:34 am WCUadmission: @IvyEyesEditing We have some amazing faculty here. #CampusChat
1:34 am WCUadmission: @SuzanneShaffer We don’t. We strictly use the students GPA/HS transcript and SAT/ACT scores for making decision. #CampusChat
1:35 am WCUadmission: I always think students, freshmen and transfers, should live on campus at least 1 year, wherever they go. #CampusChat
1:35 am campusbound: Do admission offices look to facebook… It is difficult to determine if student is placing info themselves…however #campuschat
1:35 am SuzanneShaffer: RT @WCUadmission: We get many students interested in the outdoors.Were located near Great Smoky Mountains & Blue Ridge Mountains #campuschat
1:36 am campusbound: It is very important that students understand that some colleges can and do look at facebook pages – so – BE CAREFUL! #campuschat
1:36 am IvyEyesEditing: Would you say students on the cusp could enhance their chances thru suppl. materials? @WCUadmission #campuschat
1:36 am SuzanneShaffer: Agree RT @WCUadmission: I always think students, freshmen & transfers, should live on campus at least 1 year, wherever they go. #campuschat
1:36 am WCUadmission: When looking at an application, I look at their HS transcript: Do they have th required classes, a strong GPA and SAT? #CampusChat
1:37 am BMEdegreeGIRL: @WCUadmission What is considered a strong GPA by a college? #CampusChat
1:37 am WCUadmission: @IvyEyesEditing Calling us and chatting. We will work with you as best we can. Sending in letters of rec/support never hurts. #CampusChat
1:37 am Teacherho: RT @campusbound: It is very important that students understand that some colleges can and do look at facebook pages – so – BE CAREFUL! #campuschat
1:39 am WCUadmission: I love to speak with students who are interested in the process. If you’re unsure, contact us. #CampusChat
1:39 am IvyEyesEditing: What’s the teacher student ratio? Do you think WCU supports strong rltshps w/ faculty? @WCUadmission #campuschat
1:39 am SuzanneShaffer: @collegevisit I read an article they are setting up alternate FB pages–under different names to keep real name clean #campuschat
1:39 am campusbound: collegevisit: Do you think students go back & clean up their FB pages…? I recommend they create new Facebook page. #campuschat
1:39 am collegevisit: Q for all-If an FB page is not part of application, then how can it be a factor in admissions decisions? Why look at a stu page? #campuschat
1:39 am BMEdegreeGIRL: @Teacherho Ha, We are all hearing that a lot, not a problem for me. #CampusChat
1:40 am WCUadmission: @IvyEyesEditing It’s currently around 15:1. It will be about the same size (or even smaller) than most HS classes #CampusChat
1:41 am BMEdegreeGIRL: @WCUadmission What’s the male to female ratio within student body at WCU? #CampusChat
1:41 am WCUadmission: In regards to FB and all the other sites, do clean it up. Just in case. Create a generic/simple email address plus CHECK IT! #CampusChat
1:41 am SuzanneShaffer: Perfect size RT @WCUadmission Its currently around 15:1. It will be about the same size (or even smaller) than most HS classes #campuschat
1:41 am IvyEyesEditing: Can’t imagine any admissions panel scouring Facebook unless it’s an applicant really in question? #campuschat
1:41 am campusbound: collegevisit: Q for all-Why look at a stu page? Friending a student is a good way of sharing info from a college to that student #campuschat
1:41 am BMEdegreeGIRL: @collegevisit Some just laugh and some take it seriously. #CampusChat
1:42 am WCUadmission: When I was a student, I looked @ WCU because of the small student/faculty ratio. We want students to get a one-on-one experience #CampusChat
1:42 am IvyEyesEditing: @WCUadmission That’s great–grad students seek out that ratio & follow their mentors–nice to see the model @ college level #campuschat
1:42 am campusbound: Create a new facebook page that looks “professional” & secure your old page with privacies so only your friends/family can view #campuschat
1:42 am WCUadmission: We don’t look at student pages unless they friend me on my work FB account. I don’t use it in the decision process. #CampusChat
1:43 am WCUadmission: I also work with International Students and have had many contact me via my work FB before emailing my office. #CampusChat
1:43 am SuzanneShaffer: @WCUadmission That’s one of the reason my daughter chose her college-small teacher/student ratio #campuschat
1:43 am IvyEyesEditing: RT @WCUadmission: We don’t look at student pages unless they friend me on my work FB account. I don’t use it in the decision process. #CampusChat
1:44 am WCUadmission: It’s important for our students to get hands-on experience and not just the book knowledge. #CampusChat
1:45 am WCUadmission: When looking at colleges, students need to see if the school has their major but also the extra-curricular stuff they want. #CampusChat
1:45 am collegevisit: @WCUadmission Do you think FB seems more like “real”contact when communicating w/intl students since its more visual than email? #campuschat
1:46 am WCUadmission: @IvyEyesEditing We look at both SAT or TOEFL scores. With SAT (for all students) we’ll take the highest CR and M portion. #CampusChat
1:46 am IvyEyesEditing: RT @WCUadmission: @IvyEyesEditing We look at both SAT or TOEFL scores. With SAT (for all students) we’ll take the highest CR and M portion. #CampusChat
1:46 am collegevisit: So, some schools friend students to make contact, and other schools wait for students to friend the college. #campuschat
1:46 am WCUadmission: @collegevisit Speaking with internationals via FB is sometimes less “scary” for them. It is more personal. #CampusChat
1:46 am IvyEyesEditing: @WCUadmission great to know, thanks. #campuschat
1:47 am WCUadmission: We now offer an Intensive English Program so if I have an international student with low scores, I try to direct them to it. #CampusChat
1:47 am collegevisit: Are parents sending friend requests to colleges/universities? #campuschat
1:48 am BMEdegreeGIRL: @campusbound What is most impressive about a student in an admisssions interview? #CampusChat
1:48 am jodylo: RT @campusbound: It is very important that students understand that some colleges can and do look at facebook pages – so – BE CAREFUL! #campuschat
1:48 am SuzanneShaffer: I bet they are RT @collegevisit: Are parents sending friend requests to colleges/universities? #campuschat
1:48 am WCUadmission: @collegevisit I have had a couple parents friend me on FB and email me questions. Not many. At least not yet. πŸ™‚ #CampusChat
1:48 am campusbound: collegevisit: Are parents sending friend requests to colleges/universities? Some colleges have Parent groups to assist them #campuschat
1:49 am IvyEyesEditing: Re: Fbook frenzy, not scalable for most AdComs to eval Fbook. I’d restrict access just as a life measure though! #campuschat
1:50 am collegevisit: Good Facebook idea! RT @campusbound: … Some colleges have Parent groups to assist them #campuschat
1:50 am campusbound: Parent groups are a good way for a college to channel their questions/concerns about the college & financial aid process. #campuschat
1:50 am SuzanneShaffer: Colleges should set up parent groups on Facebook. It would be helpful. #campuschat
1:50 am WCUadmission: @WCU has a Family Association for current students families. We begin working with families the summer they start. #CampusChat
1:51 am WCUadmission: For prospective parents, some may Like us on Facebook and ask questions there or call the office to start a conversation. #CampusChat
1:51 am collegevisit: @BMEdegreeGIRL When you get a chance: Top 10 Tis for Dressing Smart for Your College Admissions Interview: http://bit.ly/bXtoKy #campuschat
1:51 am SuzanneShaffer: @WCUadmission Can prospective parents contact that association before their student decides or is admitted? #campuschat
1:52 am WCUadmission: @SuzanneShaffer That is a great idea! We don’t have anything specifically for prospective families right now. #CampusChat
1:52 am collegevisit: RT @campusbound: Parent groups are a good way for a college to channel their questions/concerns about college & finaid process. #campuschat
1:53 am WCUadmission: @SuzanneShaffer Yes. The Family Association caters to families. Its an organization for them. Many join in April. #CampusChat
1:53 am collegevisit: Have you folks seen #admissions apps asking if the student is on Facebook? #campuschat

1:55 am IvyEyesEditing: RT @WCUadmission: @SuzanneShaffer Yes. The Family Association caters to families. Its an organization for them. Many join in April. #CampusChat
1:55 am WCUadmission: We don’t on the application/our info cards yet. That could change in the future. #CampusChat
1:56 am campusbound: collegevisit: Have you folks seen #admissions apps asking if the student is on FB? I recommend students share their FB page url #campuschat
1:57 am IvyEyesEditing: (Non sequitur: I hope Facebook implodes. It’s great contact storage but also a giant spamathon. HA) @collegevisit #campuschat
1:58 am campusbound: Students should communicate with admissions with the format they are most comfortable with – phone, text, email FB or Twitter. #campuschat
1:58 am WCUadmission: @IvyEyesEditing So true. I was in a webinar today and FB’s reach is HUGE. It’s kinda scary. #CampusChat
1:58 am SuzanneShaffer: @IvyEyesEditing Can’t say I disagree with you. re: Facebook. #campuschat
1:59 am collegevisit: Motivated students w/ a “personal brand” as they move to college will likely include their FB url, Twitter ID, etc. w/their app #campuschat
2:00 am IvyEyesEditing: If the data could be valuable…but now e.g. everyone has a fanpage. To the extent I’m like…fan of what!?! lol @WCUadmission #campuschat
2:00 am IvyEyesEditing: Sorry I digress πŸ˜‰ #campuschat
2:01 am IvyEyesEditing: Great point about personal branding though. #campuschat
2:01 am collegevisit: Hey,we’ve reached the hour mark.Very interesting convo tonight. I’ll be around a bit longer but big TY to @WCUAmdission tonite! #campuschat
2:02 am WCUadmission: Students need to remember admission offices are there to help. When in doubt, ask. Parents, ask questions as well. #CampusChat
2:02 am campusbound: IvyEyesEditing: Sorry I digress πŸ˜‰ #campuschat No problem! My comments feed onto our Facebook page – can’t wait to see the mess!
2:02 am mikesevery: They need to check out studentbranding.com before they do RT @collegevisit: include their FB url, Twitter ID, etc. w/their app #campuschat
2:02 am SuzanneShaffer: It’s inevitable that the next generation of students will already have a personal brand formed when they graduate #campuschat
2:02 am IvyEyesEditing: Online identity will become more 3D, & applicants can start controlling ‘optics’ & their ‘brand’ now (stu readers snoring yet?) #campuschat
