FutureU Podcast Ep. 155: Testing, Athlete Labor & the FAFSA


In this episode, hosts Jeff Selingo and Michael Horn explore the future of test-optional admissions following Dartmouth and Yale’s decisions to resume using the SAT and ACT, the implications of Dartmouth’s men’s basketball team attempting to unionize, and the bungled rollout of the new FAFSA.

“I think there’s a bigger issue here around our relationship with testing,” says Jeff. ”Most parents of high school students took the test themselves. There’s a belief that there needs to be some sort of bar to get into college and that bar is standardized tests.”
