Curating Your College List, Writing the Application Essay, College as Work, and Wondering About Colleges’ Effect On Society: New Forbes Entries

Hello Friends– As you might have noticed, I haven’t been writing as much here as I have in the past. A lot of my writing energy and research about college admission have gone into my Forbes.com blog, which I write five times a month. So I’ve neglected this one.

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.
