College Admission: Profession or Industry?
Thacker, Lloyd
Journal of College Admission, n164 p12-19 Sum-Fall 1999
Discusses how the condition and fate of both the college admissions profession and liberal arts education are linked, and how they are both threatened by elements of commercialism. Argues for reasserting professionalism by looking beyond the competitive advantage of the college's interest to serve a broader function as trustees of students' interests and welfare. (Author/GCP)
