Chicago Scholars: Helping Address Inequities

Chicago Scholars, the organization I now work for full-time, has its signature event on Oct. 25th. Seventy colleges and nearly 500 students, most of whom are first-generation and low-SES, will come together to interview and, in many cases, announce admission decisions and scholarships. You can read more about the Onsite College Admission Forum here.

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.
