SocratesPost is always on the frontlines scouring the news for relevant updates in the college admissions landscape. We look for anything that can help shape our understanding of the latest trends in admissions and help our readers see the direction in which we’re moving.

Questions we explored this week:

  • Where are free colleges and how do I graduate debt free?
  • True or false? There are more international college students than ever.
  • What does College Board, the administrator of the SAT and AP tests, think are the two keys to success in college and life?
