Ivy Coach’s managing director was featured today on That Expert Show, discussing everything from the importance of college applicants not coming across as well-rounded when they apply to our nation’s elite colleges to the role of legacy admission to the truth behind the need-blind financial aid policies of various universities — and more. In conversation with host Anna Canzano, Ivy Coach’s Brian Taylor debunks a bunch of commonly held misconceptions about the highly selective college admissions process and offers insights into how college applicants can ethically beat an unfair system at an unfair game.
