Inside the College Admission Process
Journalist Jeffrey Selingo takes readers inside the college admission process in his new book, “Who Gets In and Why: A Year Inside College Admission.” Selingo tells “CBS This Morning” co-host Tony Dokoupil what he learned when he gained access to the admission offices of three universities as they selected students for their incoming class. He discusses how the coronavirus pandemic is impacting the admissions process. Selingo explains the role early decision plays in the admission process, why the SAT/ACT is not as important as parents and students may think, and the difference between need-blind and need-aware schools. "Who Gets In and Why" is published by Scribner, an imprint of Simon & Schuster, a division of ViacomCBS.
