Want to be a Reedie?

Reed“It’s hard, but in the end it’s so worthwhile.”

Our college admissions interview series continues this week! I recently had a chance to speak with Falone Serna, Director of Admissions at Reed College in my home town, Portland, Oregon.  We talked all about the Reed campus and community, the college’s competitive admissions process and, most importantly, what types of students are best equipped to become a “Reedie”.  Tune into the interview to learn:

  • What advantages homeschooled applicants have over traditionally-educated students,
  • The one core skill and two required classes you’ll need to be considered for admission to Reed, and
  • Why Reed graduates have one of the lowest levels of student debt.
