In this week’s episode you will hear

In the News (2:37): Mark and Vince discuss an October article that appeared in several Ohio Newspapers entitled, Miami University Cuts Programs Amid Financial Challenges and Low Enrollment-Part 2 of 2 (Length 28 minutes)

This week’s question (30:00): Lisa and Mark discuss a Speakpipe question about School Profiles and a second question about the Custom Question about the University of Michigan that we discussed.

(Length 5 minutes)

This week’s interview (35:32): Mark and Julia interview Lee Coffin about, “Understanding Dartmouth College” 1 of 3. Part 1:

  • Lee gives his elevator pitch to explain how Dartmouth is different from other IVY’s and their overlaps; I’ve said, Christina Lopez from Barnard is our best
  • Lee talks about one personal quality that he really looks for when he is reading a file
  • Lee talks about why PQ’s fly under the radar of the things that are important to an admission officer and he uses my favorite analogy; he compares the admission process to an employer hiring someone they need in a company

The Dartmouth interview is the College Spotlight for the week. (Length 9 minutes)

Mark’s recommended resource of the week (44:55): Recommended Resource: Ben Neely (a former guest on YCBK) gives an overview of the Digital SAT and he gives a testing timeline in this 11 minute video. Here is the link: Admissions Testing Overview for Juniors: 2023-2024 (wistia.com)
