Yesterday the New York Times started an interesting debate on ways to improve the college admissions process in the United States. The article highlights the struggles the current system faces and the frustrations students and parents face when trying to navigate the process. Various contributors argue for solutions, such as a lottery system, a college matching system, and a return to a paper application system.
I agree that the accessibility of higher education in this country is not as straightforward as it should be (nor is it fair), and while many feel like they can’t make a change to such a big system, I encourage you to add to the debate. The only way to make improvements is to speak up.
How would you change the college admissions process?
