Tips on getting into — and out of — college

With the help of Matt Krupnick (and the quick thinking/typing skills of our guest, Cal State East Bay’s VP of enrollment, Greg Smith), I survived my first “live chat” this afternoon. We weren’t exactly overwhelmed with participants, but those who did join the discussion asked some good questions.

Sorry you missed it? Don’t be. You can read the entire thread here and find our Road to College guide here.

P.S. Now that I’ve caught the live chat fever, I could see how this format — the chance for readers to ask specific questions of an expert or other interesting source — could be useful on other issues as well. Have any ideas? Send them over!
