Is College a Step Up, a Step Over, or a Step Down?

college admissions expert advice from eprep.com

An old friend of mine sent me this New York Times article yesterday. Some of the students interviewed for the article remind me of one of my former college roommates who thought that his freshman year at Princeton was a lot easier than his senior year in high school. (I thought he was joking when he first made the comment, but I quickly learned that he wasn’t.) According to the article, it seems more and more advanced high school students are “yawning” their ways through their first year or two of college.
