Pomona College Visit Report by rubybrett
Admissions Interview: Yes - The admissions officer was quite young, very nice, very relaxing. Interested in what I had to say. The interview went by very quickly.
Information Session: Yes - Very relaxed atmosphere. The speaker was enthusiastic yet genuine, especially when it came to discussing admissions (test scores DO count, etc.).
Campus Tour: Yes - Our guide was very candid about the pros & cons of Pomona: she loved the 5C but hated its location, loved this class but didn't like this one, etc. Made some oddly snide comments about other
Campus Visit Notes for Pomona College
Make sure you take a look at the other schools, even if you're not interested in applying. Walking around the other 4 schools - even though I am not going to apply to either of them - showed me how much of an added bonus the consortium is. The Pitzer campus is gorgeous.
Dining/Restaurant Recommendations or Comments:
Take a stroll up to the Pitzer campus and have lunch at the Grove House! Delicious lunches, mostly created from ingredients grown in the organic garden they have in the back. Complimentary cookie.
