The Price of Admission
Daniel Golden talked about his book, The Price of Admission: How America’s Ruling Class Buys Its Way into Elite Colleges, and Who Gets Left Outside the Gate, published by Crown. Daniel Golden won a Pulitzer Prize in 2004 for a series of articles on the inner workings of college admissions offices. He argued that while race-based affirmative action policies have received media attention in the U.S., preferences for privileged applicants, such as the children of college donors and celebrities, have been largely ignored. After his presentation he responded to audience members' questions. close
