Congratulations to the 1,088 students accepted to Barnard College's Class of 2022. You are part of the most selective class in Barnard's history. Barnard chose you from 7,897 applicants for an effective acceptance rate of 13.7%.
It's that time of year when high school seniors find out their academic fate, with college acceptance letters arriving around the country. For admissions officers, there's less emphasis today put on standardized tests and more weight put on other things, like Generation Z's social media posts.
An important social media strategy for college-bound students is to appreciate LinkedIn as more than just another job board. Although LinkedIn quietly upped its minimum age last year from 14 years to 16 years, it still stands alone as an actionable college search tool.
