Listen to Episode 6B of Getting In:
Host Julie Lythcott-Haims and Getting In expert Parke Muth answer more listener questions. Parke is a private college counselor and a former admission officer at the University of Virginia.
Julie and Parke talk about some interesting admission trends he’s seen this spring—including the prevalence of “likely letters” and tuition discounts being offered to his students.
And they answer listener questions: Two different mothers contacted the podcast describing the intense pressures high-schoolers face that come with living in Fairfax County, Virginia. A father wants to know which small liberal arts schools have rigorous STEM programs. And a high school junior wonders what’s the right number of schools one should apply to—given that she’s seen peers apply anywhere in the range of two to 26.
