Pomona's Admissions Dean Appears in "Newsweek", Fields Questions in Live Online Chat
Vice President and Dean of Admissions Bruce Poch wrote an essay titled "The Search for Authenticity: A Leading Admissions Dean Explains What Colleges Really Want" that appears in the Aug. 20 issue of Newsweek.
"Our job is to make sure the students who attend our institutions are really who they appear to be, and that they will give and take something of value in the college's educational environment,'' writes Poch. " What we ask for in an application may seem like a lot, but students should know that we're acting in their best interests."
Poch, who frequently is quoted in the media, also fielded questions on topics ranging from financial aid to SATs to "gap" years in a live online chat for the magazine.
