Featured Find: Are College Admissions Outdated and Inefficient?

“… it’s not just traditional high school courses and activities that will provide the breadcrumbs of data that colleges would scour. They might also search for prospective students among students who take free massive open online courses, or MOOCs …

It’s an easier and cheaper way to find that diamond-in-the-rough student, and it’s a safer bet that these students ultimately will succeed, given they’re already doing the work …

Instead of students applying to college, getting accepted, paying a lot of money in tuition, and only then taking classes that they might end up failing, students get to try out college first with very little risk.”

Seniors: With summer approaching, you and other high school students may first bask in the glow of three months away from essays and assigned projects.  Once that feeling subsides—particularly for all of you wonderfully ambitious students—you’ll wonder if any options exist to keep your mind stimulated, prepare yourself for their future careers, or possibly explore avenues they have yet to tread.
