Elite colleges are not going to be easier to get into even after the coronavirus pandemic

Colleges across the country are grappling with the fallout from the coronavirus pandemic and declining state funding, but one author says elite universities are unlikely to change their admission policies.

As millions of Americans remain unemployed due to the economic impact of the virus, many prospective college students are rethinking the idea of attending an expensive college. 

Yet, even with the threat of lower enrollment numbers, elite colleges like the Ivy Leagues are still unlikely to ease admissions standards, Jeffrey Strohl, co-author of “The Merit Myth: How Our Colleges Favor the Rich and Divide America” said on Yahoo Finance’s The Ticker.

“The highly selective institutions … probably are going to have to keep their brand… or they lose credibility of their value, so people will need to maintain the belief that a $50,000 a year education is worth $50,000,” he explained.

NYU professor rips colleges for being ‘drunk on exclusivity,’ says coronavirus will force change

A top marketing expert believes the coronavirus pandemic will accelerate the disruption of U.S. higher education that’s been “drunk on exclusivity” and creating a “caste system.”

The worldwide COVID-19 crisis has added fuel to a furious debate about colleges and universities. The crisis forced institutions of higher learning around the country to shut campuses, and engage in distance learning and virtual commencement.

It stoked a debate about whether students and parents will be inclined to continue paying top dollar for virtual campus life, especially with the fall session up in the air.

“No industry, other than health care, has raised its prices faster than education, and I’m part of the problem. We have become drunk on exclusivity,” Scott Galloway, a business professor at NYU’s Stern School of Business, told Yahoo Finance in a wide-ranging interview on Tuesday.

He added: “When you have the head of Harvard admissions saying that

This startup is making millions helping Harvard and other colleges stage virtual commencements

Robots are graduating from college.

At least that was the scene at Japan’s BBT University earlier this month as telepresence robots donning cap and gown filled in for students walking the commencement stage to receive their diplomas during the coronavirus lockdown. Digital tablets strapped to robot faces featured the faces of real graduates on a video call in an attempt to experience the moment firsthand.

In a similar spirit, many colleges in the U.S. are now scrambling to find similar solutions that could still help students personalize and enjoy their commencement instead of just resorting to sad, cold video conference calls. 

One startup that quickly pivoted to help schools do just that is U.K.-based StageClip, a
