In case you missed the WSJ On Campus webcast, Inside the Admissions Office, Unigo is posting short, easy-to-digest video clips on its website summarizing key topics covered by the broadcast that took place earlier this month.

Unigo is a free web-based guide to US colleges and universities containing student-generated reviews, advice, and video. It is consistently among favorite college search websites named by members of the Independent Educational Consultants Association (IECA).

Go directly to the Unigo website to access the clips or watch the entire webcast. Several segments are also posted on YouTube. No registration or personal details are required to view any of the videos on either site.

To get started, take a few minutes and watch the clip posted below to learn how a typical admissions office actually operates. In this segment, the deans reveal the process by which an application makes it from reader to admit.
