Young talks about admissions with Lisa Birnbach

John Young, HWS director of admissions, was a guest on The Lisa Birnbach Show on Greenstone Media on Tuesday, Sept. 19.

He and Birnbach talked about Harvard University's recent decision to end early admissions and how this may change higher education. They also discussed SAT Optional, the Common Application and the admissions interview.

Young participated in the program by using an ISDN line at the studios of WEOS-FM, the National Public Radio station at the Colleges.

The Lisa Birnbach Show, broadcast daily from 9 a.m. to noon, features Birnbach delivering “hot issues, politics, celebrity news, and more with experience and intelligence, often providing her own running social commentary.”

” … Her passionate conversations, witty exclamations and revealing information provides that rush you need to jump start your day,” according to her Web site.

Young graduated from Colgate University with a bachelor's degree in history, and held admissions positions at Colgate and Skidmore College before joining the HWS staff in 2005.
