YouVisit College Search
The last post was entirely about visiting schools. However, what if you never had to leave the comfort of your own home? No plane, trains, and automobiles. No hotels and bad meals. No dehydration and/or hangover! Thanks to fellow Louper Neil C. (who is clearly far more efficient than me and an expert in augmented/virtual reality) I was introduced to YouVisit. This company has created virtual campus tours given by real students, mostly approximating what an actual tour would be. It allows you to narrow down the choices by a number of fields including enrollment, public/private, campus setting, and even tuition. While this doesn't completely replace a tour (nothing can replace the tangible), it may be a good first step to help narrow things down before you invest in traveling.
