    Great list, Suzanne.

    Parents and students interested in “pushing back” against the notion that the college process is mostly about what “they” (the colleges) want… should think about following me as well.

    I’m Shelley Krause, tweeting as @butwait, and I coordinate a wiki of college lists that is free and open to the public.
