Let's take a look at the mathematical task:

If there is no charge for the tour then the total consumer surplus is: 79$

CS = 20 + 14 + 30 + 15 = 79 $

The warden would have to offer 15 $ to get three people to postpone their visit (Jon, Jack & Fran). If one considers the people who abstain from visiting the caves on that day as suppliers, their total surplus will be: 3 + 1 + 0 = 4 $.

As I told you in a previous newsletter Jason is a wonderful tour guide. Let me tell you about the last “tour”.

Normally we take our sightseeing after church on Sunday. This time, however, Jason and Jennifer had business in Guntersville that had to be taken care of on a weekday. Saturday morning we piled into the car, and headed for Guntersville, which is one of the originally settled areas in Alabama and is surrounded by lakes.

The business didn’t take long and we headed up the steep hill out of town to have lunch at a place called O’Charley’s. If you’re ever in Guntersville you absolutely must try O’Charley’s potato soup. It is to die for.

After eating we started our “tour” which was to include Guntersville State Park. Pennsylvania is my native state, and hills and trees remind me of home. Even though I lived in Florida for 23 years if you wanted to see hills and woods you had to travel north, way north.

For some reason I made it out of my house without my toothbrush and toothpaste, but fortunately I was able to replace them as soon as I realized my mistake. I also forgot film for my camera but was able to purchase some once I got to Mexico as well. Far worse than forgetting those things, however, was the realization that I had forgotten my Spanish dictionary that ...

Campus visits have become a ritual for college-bound high school juniors and seniors who are making decisions about which school they want to attend. But some of the best insights can come not from taking a tour, but from talking to students who are already enrolled. Massachusetts Institute of Technology is using social media to make it easier for prospective applicants to get the inside scoop from students.



College Interview General Preparation

Lets first think of a college interview, what is it really, why do they even bother to take the time and personally meet each applicant, and what kind of power a good interview has. You have probably conducted your own national college search, and already know your preferences. Colleges have interviews for one simple reason, it works, it works for them – some data shows them that the applicants they personally meet and talk with, on average, succeed in their programs and have...

Do’s and Don’ts For Campus Tours
Every summer our parking lots runneth over with families arriving from all over the country. This is no average summer road trip. They are packing up the car and charging the iPods on a quest to find out a little bit more about the colleges and universities that interest them (or their parents). To all of you who are planning trips this summer, we welcome you. We are eager to share the nuances of our respective schools. We know you have a lot of information at your fingertips with pamphlets and websites—maybe you’re even following your favorite schools on Twitter—but nothing can take the place of the all-important campus visit. Often, a two-hour experience on campus can make or break the decision to apply.

As the adviser for the Wake Forest University Ambassadors-in-Admissions, I’m lucky to have a lot of interaction with our current students as well as prospective ones.

Last Thursday, we had our end-of-year dinner and awards ceremony. While stories of the best and worst tour moments of the year (including a gem that we’ve nicknamed “Snakes on a Tour”). we began to discuss the subject of Do’s and Don’ts for visitors. What makes a great tour? What can ruin it for everyone? We want to share some of the highlights as you prepare to visit campuses across the country.
