Get Wise: College Admissions Explained

S104 - Test scores are never the most important thing.

Episode Summary

This week's fundamental truth: Test scores are never the most important thing. Our guest is Paul Kanarek. Paul is a co-founder of The Princeton Review, where he spent 30+ years as Senior Vice President before leaving to become a managing partner at Collegewise. In that time he’s developed some “strong” opinions on just about everything related to college admissions, notably a deep skepticism of entire American testing industry. The irony is not lost on him.
