A look inside the Weekly Issue

Exclusive Interviews – “learn what’s on the other side”

This is for you curious ones who want a peek into the other side.

College admissions insiders tell us what it’s like to evaluate applicants. We source and publish these in-depth interviews so you have the most relevant knowledge on how to best position yourself.

Admissions officers, counselors, deans, directors, and interviewers all get to evaluate college applicants. Read and understand how it’s done by the people who do it every day.

This is the future of college admissions. We’re inviting you on this crucial journey to get the edge you need.

Subscribers get unlimited access to interviews and can request interviews with schools of their choice.

Dear Socrates — “the advice column”

This is for you inquisitive ones who are always learning from others’ questions and asking your own.

We all need answers to our questions. The ones about college are probably the most stressful.

Your peers don’t have the answers, your counselors are too busy, and you can’t seem to trust other internet blogs.

Ask us your college admissions questions and we’ll use our college admissions expertise to answer them each week.

Get your own advisor on your email.

Subscribers get unlimited access to our analyses and get priority answers.

The Skinny — “the 3-minute book review”

This is for you busy bees with no extra reading time.

New college admissions resources come out every day. There’s a wealth of knowledge in there, but you probably don’t have time to consult them.

We get it. You’re busy. SocratesPost curates and reviews a college admissions book, podcast, webinar, or article each week and writes you a 3-minute summary.

Subscribers get unlimited access to our summaries and can request book reviews.
