I’m sure that you’ve heard about the news that has been in the news since the summer of 2016. That’s right, it’s been that long since any of us have been able to get our news from just the news.
Well, its certainly a news story. It was reported by CBS that the business school at the University of Southern California had been ordered to pay out over $300 million to the families of the victims of campus shootings. In response, the school took the school down from the list of universities it was accredited to.
It seems like the school is taking it down. It’s actually a bit late to talk of the school.
In the same story, some students claim that the school’s admissions process is biased against them. This is a bit of what makes this news so interesting. It seems that the school is saying that they’re not sure who to admit to their business programs. And then they decide who to admit by random chance. I’m not sure this is the right way to go about things.
It’s quite possible that the school might have a biased history of admissions. One could just blame it on that student or their parents.
There’s also a good bit of news for the students and their parents about how the process works. As a result of the new process, students will now have to provide a lot more evidence for their applications. This should help students who aren’t sure of their backgrounds and don’t have everything all spelled out for them. And for those who already have great applications, they can get a lot more assistance.
In the past couple of years the process for college admissions has gotten less and less difficult. The system is supposed to be “fair” to students, but it is hard to know the exact reason. Some students have complained about their applications looking too thin and the process being too complicated. Others have complained about the new system being too slow.
It is true, in general, that high-school applications are difficult, but there are a lot of factors that contribute to how difficult they are. The most important factor is the application itself. The more rigorous your application, the more likely colleges are to accept it, but it’s also more difficult for a student to get an acceptance letter.
The application process is not difficult, but it is slow. I went to two different schools to get into the most prestigious business school in the Midwest. The first time I applied, I had 10 essays to write and the second time I had 15. After the first, I had a dozen. After the second, I had 20. The first time I tried to get into a school that was more competitive, I had three essays to write. The second time, I had 20.
