One of the admissions staff provided an engaging and informative session, with Q&A. Very worthwhile and well attended, most useful and friendly approach, enhanced our opinion greatly. [View Full Report]

Amazing. The speaker made an effort to get to know every student in the crowd. All the staff introduced themselves and their specialties. We heard an amazing speech from a Pomona student. [View Full Report]

The information session was informative. Most was talk about getting in and what students do at Pomona. Still, there was not as much talk about the admissions process as I would have liked. [View Full Report]

Interesting session by a great speaker; kept reminding us about the importance of fit, how she reads fantastic apps that sound perfect for another school, and hope that student has applied there also. [View Full Report]

Unimpressive, IMO. The guy never even introduced himself, though we got a card later so I now know who he is. We did the tour first, so that's part of the reason the info session was redundant. [View Full Report]

Speaking-wise not the best--the guy was a little awkward and said "Let me just back up a bit" far too much, but information-wise there was all sorts of useful information. Very very helpful. [View Full Report]

Very relaxed atmosphere. The speaker was enthusiastic yet genuine, especially when it came to discussing admissions (test scores DO count, etc.). [View Full Report]

My parents attended this while I visited a class. They felt it reviewed the information from the web site. The presenter stressed sending in the arts, science, and athletic supplements if applicable. [View Full Report]

Information session could have been better. Evinced an elitist attitude out of character with the rest of the visit and son's subsequent experiences. [View Full Report]

Admissions counselors seemed to tiptoe around some of the major questions about test scores and extracurricular expectations, but were helpful in expl [View Full Report]
