College Crossroads and Vox Pops Listening

1. Sydney Opening Moment

2. Blog posting:  It’s April, and that means colleges and universities are notifying high school seniors across the nation about whether they were accepted, rejected or wait-listed.
How involved are you in the college process right now? What messages have you gotten from your parents, teachers and others about the importance of getting into the right school? What do you believe?
What kind of college do you think will be the best fit for you? Why?
In “Our Crazy College Crossroads,” the Op-Ed columnist Frank Bruni writes about this question. Read the article and then answer three of the following questions on your blog:
— What is your reaction to Mr. Bruni’s idea that where you go to college matters less than “the effort you put into your studies, the earnestness with which you hone your skills, what you actually learn”?
— If you’re a student who is finished with the college process, what advice would you give high school juniors?
— What is your idea of what the perfect college for you might be? Why?
— How much pressure do you feel, whether from parents, teachers, the media or your friends, to get into a selective college? How do you handle that pressure?
— In the end, how much do you think it matters where you go to college? Why?
