Universalize the Med School Admission Model
In our recent discussion about Score Choice, many posters and e-mailers told me they thought life would be better if colleges all adopted a computerized student admission system similar to what is used for Med Schools. As I understand it, the schools rank the students, the students rank the schools, and the computer makes the best possible matches. Sounds easy. Of course the Ivies will never participate in anything so unelitist.
But how about the rest of higher ed? Should we do this? If not, why not?
