For many of you this is the first time stopping by the blog, so first off, welcome! Read some of the past posts, comment on topics you want to know more about, or discuss your opinions on the topic in this post. As far as introductions, I am Andrew Flagel and am the current Dean of Admissions and Assistant Vice President for Enrollment Development at George Mason University located just outside Washington, D.C. in Northern Virginia and I’ve been in the college admissions and higher ed world for closing in on 20 years now (read my profile for boring biographical info).
The point of this little project is to reach out to students and parents (prospective and otherwise) and offer my views on what’s going on in the world of college admissions today both at Mason and around the country. The comments section is wide open for feedback and I try to do a good job of responding as timely as possible, though we’ll see if this theory works come late-fall when we’re buried in thousands of applications. For now, take a look at today’s post and if you feel like it post some feedback.
Thanks for reading, and I look forward to interacting with everyone.
