Information Session: Yes - very informative, adm. officer talking was witty as well as knowledgable.

Campus Tour: Yes - informative, saw all key places (except the library... never did get to go in there)

Campus Visit Notes for Pomona College


Visit Description:

Overall an excellent visit. Gorgeous school, friendly staff/students (at least those that I met). The interview could have been better but I hear many other students did not have a similar experience. I would suggest trying to interview with the admissions staff instead of a senior, but that's just my personal preference.

Hotel/Lodging Recommendations or Comments:

Doubletree- about 5 min drive from admissions office. Comfortable lodgings, reasonably priced. Would def. stay there again.
