Do colleges use the internet to find out more about you?
Yes or no?
Yes colleges do look you up when they are thinking about accepting you into the college. Any college that has successful students doesn't just start from scratch with them. They don't want students that are not serious about there education. When thinking about accepting a student they will make sure they do a background check to make sure you are worth accepting. To make sure of this they can do some research on you. For example if you have a Facebook account they can use this as a resource for more information about you. But not only can they find more info about you through your account but also on your friend's accounts. But don't forget all other online social media.
