Bowdoin College Visit Report by morganna
Admissions Interview: Yes - Great student interviewer; talked about general things as well as academic and extracurricular and she answered all of my questions.
Information Session: Yes - Short, not the never-ending type you get a lot. Informative and open for questions.
Campus Tour: Yes - Beautiful campus, okay tour guide. I got a feel for the general atmosphere.
Campus Visit Notes for Bowdoin College
To be honest, I wasn't that impressed with the school after the tour and info session. I hadn't really talked to any students yet and it seemed very similar to the other LACs I had already visited. However, my interviewer was very open and enthusiastic about the school and seemed genuinely eager to share her experience with me. I highly recommend talking to people; just looking around and listening to the information session doesn't give a complete picture.

The ocean is very close. I loved Portland, about a half hour or so away.
