@Jeff_Selingo has been writing about colleges and universities for more than 20 years. He is former editor of The Chronicle of Higher Education, a contributor to The Atlantic and The Washington Post, and author of two New York Times bestsellers.
His newest book is Who Gets In and Why: A Year Inside College Admissions was released September 15. For the book, he was embedded in the admissions process at three selective colleges: Emory, Davidson, and the University of Washington, as well as followed a group of seniors and influencers who pull levers on the admissions process that you never see, such as the rankings, the testing agencies, and financial aid consultants.
He will help answer your questions about how colleges craft a class and what you can do as an applicant to improve your chances. Ask him anything.
Jeff has agreed to give away a free copy of the book to the first 15 members that ask a question.
