What to look for on Smart Talk on Monday, April 29, 2019:

Last month, breaking news of a huge college admission cheating scandal dominated headlines across the country.  

The story captured the nation's attention because it involved allegations of cheating by the rich and powerful for their children to gain admission to prestigious colleges and universities.  

The allegations included bribery, test doctoring, and athletic preference. 

The admissions scandal has invited scrutiny of the admission practices of the colleges themselves. How does the process work? What grades, test scores and abilities does it take get into top-tiered schools?  

Appearing on Smart Talk to discuss the process are Bill Conley, Vice President for Enrollment Management, Bucknell UniversityLarry Kostelac, Head Coach, Boys Basketball, Trinity HS, Camp Hill, and Kim Clements, Cumberland Valley High School, School Counselors Department Chair, and SAT test administrator
