The Journal of College Admission is planning a summer/fall issue that focuses on college admission counseling in the COVID-19 era.
If you are willing to speak to our writers on any of the following topics, please email the editor. We are seeking a well-rounded representation of our membership and appreciate your perspective—please pass this along to colleagues whose voices should be included.
