The mid-spring months are always an exciting time of year. Around that time, we begin receiving college admissions results and can start planning out how our fall semester may look. It’s also a great time to start putting together a “summer reading list”; a perfect opportunity to curate content for yourself during a time of transition.
With that in mind, I wanted to do things a little differently this month. Rather than provide advice about an important topic that impacts the college admissions process for high school students, I’m equipping you with my “summer reading & listening list”. This list focuses on some strong news reporting, data, podcasts, and opinions that I think might help tackle many issues that are at the forefront of parents, family members, students, counselors, and advocates’ minds.
- College Admissions Blog – Georgia Tech Admissions Blog
- Book – Who Gets In and Why: A Year Inside College Admissions by Jeffrey Selingo
- Podcast – Revisionist History Season 6: Episodes 2 (Lord of the Rankings) & 3 (Project Dillard)
- College Athletics Reporting – Supreme Court Backs Payments to Student-Athletes in N.C.A.A. Case
- Financial Aid Suggestions – 12 Expected Family Contribution Tips
