This is a recording of the December 1, 2020 webinar, Who Gets In and Why: An Inside Look at College Admissions, featuring Jeff Selingo. In this conversation with SAIS President Debra Wilson, Jeff Selingo dispelled the entrenched notions of how to compete and win at the admissions game, revealed why families have much to gain by broadening their notion of what qualifies as a “good college,” and explained how the pandemic will impact admissions.
