Getting In: Does Moving to a “Better” School District Improve My Child’s Admissions Chances?

Host Julie Lythcott Haims welcomes back Penn professor Marybeth Gasman to answer listener questions.

A dad in Pennsylvania says his high achieving daughter, a junior, “has no idea what direction she wants to go” or what she wants to study and he’d like some advice on what sort of schools to look at. And a mom in Indiana wonders if moving to a “better” school district will improve her children’s college admissions chances.

Marybeth Gasman is a professor of higher education at the University of Pennsylvania where she directs the Penn Center for Minority Serving Institutions.
A former student and admissions officer at Indiana University, Gasman continues to serve on admissions committees at Penn.
