A Little Recognition

I’m pleased to report that my blog entry “Elephant in the Room” was featured at the New York Times‘s blog, The Choice, on Monday, Sept. 21, 2009, along with several others. Times reporter Jacques Steinberg wanted to publish some observations about the many questions people asked Harvard’s dean of admission Bill Fitzsimmons. These and the reactions to the reactions (and will it ever stop??) can be read there, as can many other entries about college admission issues.

I’d be happy to hear your reactions and comments.

About Will Dix

I am currently writing a book about college admission. I'm interested in the intersection of the college process and American culture. I attended Amherst College in the 1970s, taught high school English and theater at The Hill School in the '80s, returned to Amherst in the '90s as an admission dean, and began the '00s as a college counselor at the University of Chicago Laboratory School. I then joined Chicago Scholars as Program Director. Currently, I blog about college admission for Forbes.com. I also help community organizations serving low income students understand the college admission process so more students can consider gaining access to higher education. I have a few private college counseling clients that I take by referral only. The views expressed in this blog are mine alone.
