Forbes: This Company Could Change The Broken College Admissions System
We’re very excited to share that Derek Newton just wrote a great article about Concourse for Forbes. In his words…
The way we do things now – students pick a few schools, fire off applications and wait to hear – is unfair to students, incentives the wrong things, leads to bad decision making and, by the way, is pretty bad for colleges too. Concourse is doing the entire college admission process backwards – they have colleges apply to students. In other words, instead of a student asking a college to let them it, the Concourse approach is to have colleges find students they want, actually admit them, then essentially apply to the student to earn their enrollment. That, as Morrison says, “flips the entire process on its head.”
We couldn’t agree more! Check out the full article: This Company Could Change the Broken College Admissions System.
