    Like many many schools, the profs are fantastic, the adjuncts are so-so, the staff are angels, and the administration is middling-terrible. Many of my classmates (and I myself) have been burned by misleading or straight-up dishonest course catalog information. There is no 4+1 MA/MFA in Children's Lit. I repeat: there is none. Talk to your department heads, talk to the head of the school of management or nursing if that's your program, talk to actual professors who have advised students like you through their programs. I guarantee they will know what is and is not possible for you. Academic advisors are kind of hit-and-miss; I got a good one but I've heard some unfortunate stories from other students. When in doubt, talk to your department head. Also, do not be afraid to make yourself a nuisance. Follow up with your advisor, follow up on your paperwork, follow up on everything. Whichever school you end up at, college is a system that you work best by engaging.

    Tour the campus, go to accepted student days, and do an overnight. Talk to the students who aren't tour guides. The girls at Simmons are extremely nice so go by what you think not what you hear about the school from parents and friends.

    I PROMISE WHAT THEY TELL YOU AT TOURS IS NOT THE FULL STORY. The school is very very different then what they show you on tours and overnights.

    Research your major. We have many accelerated programs or programs that allow you to receive a higher degree in a shorter amount of time. Take advantage of small class sizes and really get to know your professors. This will help with networking.

    Do not look at the big ticket price. Simmons College is a private school and they absolutely love dishing out HUGE grants, which is free money in the sense that you will never have to pay it back or anything. It would cost me more money to just own an apartment in Boston than it does for me to live here, get fed, and get a quality education.
