A radical change for admissions

From Inside Higher Ed: “Imagine a new way for colleges to admit students: students don’t apply. They just create a single, basic portfolio, showing their grades, their interests and relevant information. They can include their test scores if they want to. Colleges would then look at the portfolios and make offers of admission, without even knowing the names of the students. And what about those students who want to go to Harvard University (or equally competitive colleges)? They would go on using the current system. This is not an admissions system for them. The new system exists. It is a company called Concourse that has been using the system to admit international students to American and international universities for the last two years.”
