After a year away from this podcast I have returned with a special guest.  Author Jeff Selingo has written about higher education for two decades. He is the author of two New York Times bestsellers, a contributor to The Atlantic and the Washington Post, and a special advisor for innovation at Arizona State University. He also co-hosts the podcast, FutureU.

In this podcast, we get deeper inside his experience embedded inside Emory, Washington and Davidson admissions offices, plus stories of the students he followed in their process of applying to their "dream" schools.

We also discuss how colleges may change through and after the COVID19 pandemic, and how students and their families need to take more ownership in the "buying" process of college.  Much like we do for buying other high ticket items like cars and homes.

Episode 228 #Embedded with Jeff Selingo

Play

Not everybody wants an author hanging around their office all day.

Our guest is a best-selling education writer Jeff Selingo, already an expert on college and higher education who took that one step further for his latest: Who Gets In and Why: A Year Inside College Admissions. Jeff managed to embed himself in three admissions offices to write this book, a feat that will boggle the mind of anyone familiar with the industry (and it is an industry, make no mistake).

We talk pitching and selling the book, lining up the admissions offices and then dancing the delicate dance of writing honestly about people and places that have opened themselves up to your critical gaze, finding students to become part of your story and balancing the stories you tell—plus all the minutia of getting those stories, from consent forms to pseudonyms to not changing the outcomes by becoming part of the story.
