Info session by a former Carleton grad who works in admissions, originally from Boston. Had some very funny things to say about Carleton( we were nerdy before it was cool to be nerdy) and Minnesota. [View Full Report]

The info session was very personal-- only one other family in addition to mine. It was more of a discussion format (no PowerPoint). Overall, very interesting and informative. [View Full Report]

Very personal, we had a small group and were able to ask as many questions as we wanted. [View Full Report]

The gentleman who spoke to us was very longwinded and boring. He also quizzed the audience on what a liberal arts college is. [View Full Report]

I was the only one there so was able to ask lots of direct, personal questions about diversity, etc. Not sure what the typical info session is like. [View Full Report]

Not the usual info session, I think, or maybe it was just too early on a weekday. Three TOC students talking to an adcom. [View Full Report]

It was pretty helpful; the woman was very good and also very enthusiastic. I had already seen the video that was shown (it's on the Carleton website) but it was still a good refresher. [View Full Report]

I visited in July and went to an information session there. It was very thorough and gave me such a good sense of the school that I decided to apply ED... in July. [View Full Report]

They showed the Carleton admission video which I had seen over 20 times at home already. [View Full Report]

It was okay. After a while all the info sessions sound alike. [View Full Report]

Trite, off-topic, dreary. Uninformative video followed by tedious, confusing lecture disguised as Q&A. [View Full Report]

The session was not very impressive. The guy really liked to talk about himself and get off track. Although these sessions are not typically very helpful. At least it was somewhat amusing. [View Full Report]

There was this awesome movie that was made by Carleton students. Gave me a good impression of the school and helped to give me a better feel of the campus life. People seemed goofy, in a good way :) [View Full Report]

Great info session. The admissions guy who did the session was full of energy, information, and enthusiasm. They showed an awesome student-made video about Carleton too. Funny!! [View Full Report]

The Admissions Counselor who gave the presentation was not at all charsmatic, but gave a thoughtful talk and answered all of the gorup's questions. [View Full Report]
