    Definitely visit to get a better feel for the school. Reach out to current students in YOUR field of interest (if you have one). Visit the website for links to useful information and blogs.

    Visit. My decision was made for me on my visit, because of the impression the people made on me. More than any statistic or ranking, the people are what make the place. If you're looking for a school where the professors are all interested in the success of their students and the students are all looking to be the best they can and support their friends, you will find that atmosphere when you visit. If you can't afford it, apply to their MSAP (Minority Student Action Program) for a paid trip.

    Make sure you are up for the challenges of a rigorous academic course load. I have heard from several friends who currently attend Pomona that transitioning from an IB high school course makes things a lot easier; however, not so much for AP. Make sure to have a global perspective and be prepared to think way outside of the box, even if it takes several hours longer to do so -- it will be expected from you.

    Pomona College looks for people they see to be leaders and openly active in their communities. Your grades and test scores do matter a great deal, but admissions really does try to get a holistic view of your person.
