Our proposal: the most productive lunch meeting you'll take all week.

Each episode, Nathan and Teege will discuss an issue directly related to college admission. We don't have all the answers, so we'll bring in two guests each time - one influencer and one practitioner.

By the end of the episode, our hope is that you'll have an idea or a tactic that you can implement in your office, perhaps as early as the afternoon.

    Every season, a few interviews need just a bit more space than we can fit into our regular format. When the full interview can't fit into one hour, we catch up in between seasons to give an unedited conversation.

    Originally published as one of two interviews for our episode on "Supporting Black Students and Families", we now bring you the extended conversation with Katie Mathews, Professional School Counselor at Northside College Prep High School in Chicago, Illinois.

    Admissions As A Business

    Admissions As A Business

    Wrapping up the Counselor's Choice season, we bring you the hot topic: is college admissions a business?



    Of course, the answer probably isn't plainly "yes" or "no" - but where on the spectrum between those two answers do we land? Where should we land?



    To guide us through this, we have Jennifer Jessie, also known as Jenn The Tutor, from Northern Virginia, thinking through the implications of this question as it relates to students and families.



    Then, Paul McGinnis, Vice President of Enrollment at Bethel University in St. Paul, Minnesota, helps us understand how the world of business does and does not, inform the business function of college admissions.

    We are thrilled to bring you two great guests to speak on this topic.



    Kristina Dooley, Founder and President at Estrela Consulting in Hudson, Ohio, and the Immediate Past President of the Independent Educational Consultants Association starts the conversation with her story, and what she's seen from people considering the move.
