Few subjects are more loaded than that of college admissions. Get insight into this hot topic, as experts break down such issues as the impact of recent lawsuits at Harvard and UNC, the response from selective colleges to the Varsity Blues scandal, the sense that it’s a zero-sum game, the challenge facing lower- and middle-class families to access the advantages of a college degree, and how colleges perceive innovative high schools and how they are responding and attempting to innovate themselves. 

Note: If you're looking for a presentation with a playbook on how to get into selective colleges, this is not the one for you!
