As popular as they are, wikipedia and wikis are getting some bad press on the list serv of the National Association for Admissions Counseling. The counselors and admissions officers on that list regularly trade advice (ie – which college has the best underwater co-ed luge team that also offers courses in mortuary science and has scholarships by zodiac sign? anyone?). I periodically post some here when amusing, but try to add the caveat that the lists are randomly reported, rarely comprehensive, and possibly downright mistaken. Unfortunately, it appears a volume of these lists are appearing on wikis without any explanation of source. Beware of any list of schools that isn’t backed up by a data source (and remember that Mason already has exactly what you want. Our co-ed underwater luge team ROCKS!). Be seeing you.
