Complete Ivies Buzz Book

Complete Ivies Buzz Book was originally published on Vault.

In this new edition, we publish extended excerpts from recent surveys of students and alumni and sample admissions essays to bring you the inside scoop on different undergraduate programs. The survey comments cover the following areas:

  • Admissions
  • Academics
  • Employment prospects
  • Quality of life
  • Social life

The guide is intended to serve as a complement to other references to colleges and universities currently available that utilize school-reported data. Unlike those guides, Vaults Buzz Books (which also include the Rising Ivies Buzz Book, College Buzz Book, Business School Buzz Book and Law School Buzz Book) are composed almost entirely of information provided directly to Vault from students and alumni. (We asked the schools to comment on the surveys after they were collected; this process is detailed later in this introduction.).
