The College simulation

Posted on

While first-year students have recently experienced the admissions process as individual applicants, this simulation requires them to make decisions about a pool of candidates from the perspective of the Admissions and Financial Aid team at a small liberal arts college. The simulation is based on sample application files provided of Scott Hermann-Keeling (former associate director of admissions at Trinity), which I modified with the assistance of Eli Rose, Ben DeBeer-Zeiger, and Jasmin Agosto, to serve as a companion exercise to our first book, Mitchell Stevens, Creating a Class: College Admissions and the Education of Elites (2007).
