I’ve posted several times in the past (here, here, here) on the importance of carefully considering what you publish on the web.  I was at a college admissions workshop last weekend that was hosted by the University of Rochester.  One of the speakers explained that at some schools, an admissions officer might look through 7000 applications.  They clearly don’t have time to look at the Facebook page of each applicant, but occasionally they will take a peek and what they see there could have an impact on the admission decision.  One other thing – applicants should not have a provocative email address – it’s an immediate turn-off for an admissions officer.
