Episode 3 – A look at BU admissions
The “College Admissions Scandal” broke in the winter of 2019, which inspired CC160 students Grace Ferguson and Alejandra Mclinn to think about privilege and access to higher education. What does it take to get into a college like BU? What role does legacy status play in the admissions process? In this episode, Grace and Aleja spoke to Kelly Walter, Associate VP and Dean of Admission at BU. They also asked current BU students for their take on legacy admissions.
