The Coalition for Access now has a website.

We’ve been rather outspoken in the press and on the pages of this college admissions blog on the Coalition for Access, Affordability, and Success. If you haven’t read our thoughts on this Coalition, have a look at our thoughts as published in Brown University’s newspaper, Georgetown University’s newspaper, Yale University’s newspaper, the University of Pennsylvania’s newspaper, and you get the idea by now. Hey, we never claimed to not be outspoken. We tell it like it is. Deal with it.

Anyhow, we happened to notice that the Coalition for Access, Affordability, and Success (we run out of breath even typing this mouthful) has a new website up. We figured we’d share the link with our readers. As articulated on the Coalition’s homepage, “An unprecedented coalition of diverse public and private colleges and universities is coming together to improve the college admission application process for all students. The Coalition is developing a free platform of online tools to streamline the experience of applying to college. The initial iteration of the platform will be available to freshmen, sophomores, and juniors in high school beginning in April 2016.” It’s almost March. We can hardly wait. It’s like waiting for the next season of “House of Cards.” Not.

What are your thoughts on the Coalition for Access? What are your thoughts on the organization’s new website? We’re curious to hear from our readers so post a Comment below and we’ll be sure to write back.

    I write as a high school teacher at a nationally ranked, top 10, IB STEM school. I know there might be some kids on the far end of the bell curve that are doing work during freshman year that should be stored in a “locker”, but the majority (and the population at my school is way above average) are not. It makes me wonder if the people that designed the plan for The Coalition have ever met a high school freshman?
