Host Julie Lythcott-Haims and Parke Muth, formerly a dean and an admission officer at the University of Virginia, answer two listener questions. A mother of a high achieving student wonders which colleges offer full-ride merit scholarships. And a teacher asks if students at elite high schools really do end up competing more with each other versus the total applicant pool, when applying to select colleges.
Plus we get updates from some of our seniors about their Halloween plans and what they're doing that has nothing to do with the grind of applications and schoolwork.
