We’re excited to welcome New York Times bestselling author Jeffrey Selingo to the show to discuss his latest book, Who Gets In and Why: A Year Inside College Admissions. We discuss everything from the impact of marketing and rankings on college admissions over the past 30+ years to the concept of “buyers” and “sellers” and how those distinctions can and should impact students’ college application decisions. He also shares what he’s hearing from enrollment managers this year and his thoughts on the COVID-dictated changes he thinks might stick.
