There are ongoing debates about homework–how much is enough? “Does Homework Work?”  We know college admissions are increasingly thinking about the hoops students are jumping through and the expectations placed on their time. Overscheduling students to pad your resume is counterproductive, and in this article, we read about homework in that same context.

It’s interesting to read how students differentiate themselves from their peers at schools that are–on paper–extremely similar such as students did in this article, “The Silly Stereotypes that Elite College Students Have About Other Campuses”. Campus culture is a difficult thing to define. It’s a combination of historic perception, course offerings, myth-making, and…according to this article…how you’re defined against your peers.
