Reviews

Who Gets In? is an excellent primer for people involved in the admissions process, and for those who would like to create a fairer way of assessing students. Zwick does a wonderful job of making complex assessment issues clear and accessible to a general audience. I loved this book. -- Patricia Gandara, coauthor of The Latino Education Crisis: The Consequences of Failed Social Policies
A wonderfully balanced and constructively critical reflection on the admissions strategies used by colleges and universities across the United States. Zwick rigorously tests the most commonly used approaches to admissions by exploring their long-term effects on students and offers a set of practical guidelines for reform so that universities can ensure that their admissions practices align with their larger educational mission. -- Catherine L. Horn, coeditor of Realizing Bakke's Legacy: Affirmative Action, Equal Opportunity, and Access to Higher Education
The endless debate about fairness in college admissions needs a wise, thoughtful, informed, and far-ranging consideration of the issues and rigorous data to support the conclusions, which is exactly what Zwick offers in Who Gets In? Strategies for Fair and Effective College Admissions. This book will immediately be regarded as the definitive source on fairness in college admissions, and I expect it to be the gold standard for years to come. -- Bella DePaulo, author of How We Live Now: Redefining Home and Family in the 21st Century
A thought provoking examination of higher education's supply side...Thorough and informative. -- Basil Smikle Jr. * New York Journal of Books *
Zwick's book is an invaluable resource for anyone who reflects on or worries about the state of college admission today and what it means for diversity in higher education. -- Jamaal Abdul-Alim * Diverse *
