Students hoping to get a leg up in the admissions process have learned to seek the Facebook pages of admissions counselors such as Adabel Estrella in the Texas Tech University office of admissions.
“I have had a student request me on Facebook,” Estrella said. “I deny it because I think it is important not to cross that line.”
According to a Kaplan survey, more than 70 percent of admissions officers receive friend requests from prospective students on Facebook or MySpace.
