Social Networking Reshapes College Admissions

Is your facebook page ready for the college admissions process?

Colleges are looking for ways to better get to know their applicants, and there is no longer any doubt that social networking sites are playing a key role in this process. According to this article, a Kaplan study surveyed 359 college admission officers from 500 universities. Results showed that approximately 24% of college admissions officers search social media and 20% reported performing a search on Google. While this number may seem low, it is definitely on the rise! And 12% of admissions officers’ stated that social media profiles negatively affected their college applications.

For better or for worse, expect that college admissions officers will be checking facebook, twitter, and youtube to see how you represent yourself. While this can be disconcerting, it can also be an opportunity to update your online image so you are sure to impress not only admissions officers but future employers as well!

Debbie Gibson and Tiffany Duel in Mega Python vs. Gatoroid. FINALLY.

If you don't know who these people are, just know them as the stars of Mega Python vs. Gatoroid. And don't write your college essay about the Mega Python or the Gatoroid.

All right, it's Friday, and this post isn't going to be so much for the students applying to college this year as it is for the counselors and parents who love them.

CEO would like to send out a hearty congratulations to the wizards at the inexplicably titled SyFy channel for rolling up their sleeves, putting the noses to the grindstone, and getting some very important work done. These people have brought Debbie Gibson and Tiffany together. In one film. At last. And that film is titled Mega Python vs. Gatoroid.

That's right, for those of you who couldn't get enough of her epic turn in Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus, the 80s pop star Debbie (that's Deborah to you) Gibson returns in what ought to be called a conceptual sequel to that made-for-the-small-screen masterpiece if someone's not out there calling it that already.

But the people at SyFy didn't stop there. No. They brought on the lead vocalist of the 'I Think We're Alone Now' cover that everyone who was eight at the time thought was the original. That's Tiffany. Nope, don't know what her last name is and we didn't stop to look it up. Too excited.

What will come of MPVSG as the kids are calling it only the future knows. My guess is that it will involve a snake and a gator of some sort doing battle. But it will also feature 80s rivals Debbie Gibson and Tiffany doing battle and that's what we've waited over twenty years to see here. With the special effects in Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus rivaling those of an awkward Super Nintendo cut scene we can only hold out hope for the best of all the gatoroid has to offer. Whatever a gatoroid is.
