The Chosen: The Hidden History of Admission and Exclusion at Harvard, Yale, and Princeton
by Jerome Karabel, a review from The Christian Science Monitor by Teresa Méndez.
"We're at a point where the frenzy to be admitted to a top college doesn't seem as if it could get any more desperate. No wonder. Near the end of his weighty (711 pages) history of admission ? and exclusion ? at Harvard, Yale, and Princeton, Jerome Karabel concludes: 'It is no exaggeration to say that the current regime in elite college admissions has been far more successful in democratizing anxiety than opportunity.' In this climate, his tome actually comes as something of a relief." Read the entire Christian Science Monitor review.
