May 1st Is National College Decision Day. What Have We Learned From the Admissions Scandal?

What Mat Jacobson can say in an interview on a
Reimagined Higher Education System
:

May 1st is National College Decision Day, a deadline for all high school seniors to choose which college to attend. We should all be celebrating this momentous occasion, where students feel pride that their hard work has finally paid off, and they can now share this special occasion on social media. But what has the college admissions scandal shown us about the real workings within the admissions system?

      • You might think that College decisions on admissions are simply based on the abilities of the student. That seems logical, except you would be wrong.
      • Despite uplifting and inspiring mission statements on universities’ homepages about being “inclusive” for “society as a whole” and “advancing community interests,” universities in practice do the exact opposite. They deliberately restrict admissions numbers because the lower the % of students they let in the door, the higher the school is ranked
      • You might think this doesn’t make much sense. If Apple released only 200 of a new iPhone model, but 100,000 people wanted one (0.2%), does that % somehow make the phone function better? And if the universities own admissions practice isn’t logical, what does that say for the university as a whole?

A Solution for Business Students

      • Business degrees remain highly sought-after and the demand is great.
      • Universities should uphold their stated missions of access, inclusion, and diversity. Ducere (an American-based business school) and the University of Wales (a publicly accredited British university, and registered by the US Dept of Education) are proud to have no barriers or caps on admissions. Total tuition for an online Bachelor’s degree or an MBA is only $14,500. Students have multiple entry points catering for those that had great privileges growing up, but also those that didn’t have the support structures to get the best GPA and SAT scores.
      • And the quality of education? Students with Ducere-Wales University learn from Presidents, Nobel Prize winners, and CEOs, and students come from all over the world, and from the most prestigious organizations.

It is not too late for High School students to take advantage of alternative opportunities that exist in higher education—and that goes well beyond the degrees offered at Ducere. There are many non-traditional degree options, including a vast array of international degrees, that are often world-class, have simpler entry criteria, and are far more affordable. Students and parents should be open to new options, rather than pushing students into a uniform cookie-cutter approach to education.
