The Big New Effort To Revamp College Admissions — Will It Work?
TO: America’s colleges and universities
FR: America’s high school students
RE: Please make the college admissions process less daunting and more collaborative, creative, engaging and in tune with the Digital Age. Oh, and while you’re at it, try to level the admissions playing field between rich and poor.
Funny you should ask, dear students. Those are exactly the goals of the new Coalition for Access Affordability, and Success. The group just announced a new free joint application website and online college planning portal. The goal is to help students collaborate with counselors and build a rich portfolio of work throughout high school. The site is scheduled to launch in January.
