2022 has seen college admissions in the news with changing test policies, affirmative action, and shifting trends in how recruitment is done. The Wall Street Journal's report in January of sixteen major US universities involved in antitrust violations was followed by the Supreme Court announcement that it will revisit the affirmative action lawsuit.
We have been busy keeping current with trends and also visiting colleges, and attending webinars and professional training. We visited UCLA, Loyola Marymount University, and Chapman. Our focus towards pre-med and med school admissions has gained momentum with more webinars, interview prep for aspiring students and application help. We are exploring different medical schools and understanding how their unique missions aligns with their admissions. This month, Anu attended webinar hosted by the UW Medical School that showcased their goal of selecting an inclusive student body with regional representation.
