Recording: Reimagining College Admissions, Mar 8, 2023

Affirmative action is on thin ice, admission rates at elite colleges are in the single digits, and COVID-19 is worsening challenges faced by applicants from low-income families while heightening the advantages enjoyed by others. It’s time for a radically reimagined, post-varsity blues college admissions process. Diverse and experienced panelists will share new strategies to help equalize admissions while ensuring colleges remain solvent and maintain academic standards.
