Admissions 101: The More Apps You File, the More They Charge
I was fuming about the practice of some law schools of charging no application fee to students with very high LSAT scores. How about another kind of incentive, or rather, disincentive, to try to damp down the over application craze to undergraduate institutions? Could we persuade the National Association for College Admission Counseling to recommend a sliding scale? If a student files up to seven applications, no change. But if her number of apps gets higher, the colleges have to charge extra foreach one. Would that help or hurt the dynamic?
