This is a central location where our students can easily update the website's contents.

I like the links to college sites and the essay section, but I think more detailed interviews are needed. Some of them seem a little too general.

I think the FAQ section is pretty informative.

I didn't understand why the Teacher Recomendations section was blank, but the pros and cons of residence halls were helpful.

I say we need to have a Teacher Recommendations section. I don't like it blank.

The links to powerpoints and collegeboard.com are very helpful.

I would recommend that each page has a link back to the home page.
It would make this site easier to navigate.

If anyone was wondering why I edited almost everyone's page it's because I took the liberty and inserted a link back to the Front Page for almost all 18 subpages of the wiki so that it is easier to navigate.

I edited the sidebar so there is easy access to ALL of the main pages (the ones on the Home page) when you're looking on a page. That way, a person can jump from one topic to the next in an instant.
