Admissions is truly on the "front line" of providing correct information to the public. When you think about it, you literally ARE the face of the institution! So it is vital that you are as up to date as possible using those boards, blogs, etc. I'm glad you found those useful. As for accreditation, you are right: you simply MUST understand the rules and regulations of those governing bodies. And they often seem to change almost each and every day! Very glad that discovering this was useful for you!
