Thoughtful column on college
This from Michael Winerip an education columnist from Sunday's NY Times. Not something necessarily to discuss but food for thought. I'm reading a book by a woman who used to be an admission's officer at Duke University. It is pretty heartbreaking. There are many wonderful colleges and universities out there and the name-brand ones are unbelievably hard to get into even for BWRKs (her name for Bright Well-Rounded Kids).
