"Lloyd Thacker is one of those rare people who turns concern into action. His is a sensible and humane voice in the national conversation about where American higher education is headed and where it should be going."

Andrew Delbanco
Director of American Studies,
Julian Clarence Levi Professor of the Humanities
Columbia University

"While many informed persons mutter about the inequities and wrong-headedness of the current college admissions procedure, almost no one has taken the crucial step from complaint to constructive action. Lloyd Thacker deserves high praise for his pioneering role in launching serious conversation and investigation of alternative approaches to college admissions. Institutions should be judged by the values embodied in their actions, not in their college catalogs. I hope that many schools will join Lloyd Thacker's efforts to create an admissions process that embodies our core educational values."

Howard Gardner
Hobbs Professor of Cognition and Education,
Harvard Graduate School of Education

"Thank you again for participating in our college admissions panel at The Bishop's School. Our families who attended continue to rave about the information shared, and those who could not attend have asked when you will be back to speak. Our goals of providing perspective, insight, and calm into the college process were well-met by your expertise and warm demeanor..."

Co-Directors of College Counseling
