Andrew Flagel, Senior Vice President for Students and Enrollment at Brandeis University in Waltham, Massachusetts, talks all things college admission with the Boston Globe. One of the great takeaways: "There is a disconnect between this current worry that somehow being an English major is a disadvantage.

And that’s exactly at the heart of a liberal arts education." Read all of his terrific advice here.
