“If you’re anything like me, you start your day by reading the very latest news in the higher education world: Inside Higher Ed," said James Miller, the host of AACRAO's first podcast, Admit It, in his introduction to the inaugural episode with his first guest, editor and co-founder of that publication, Scott Jaschik.

The discussion covered the highlights and revelations from Inside Higher Ed's 2018 Surveys of Admissions Leaders: The Pressure Grows, as well as topics such as the political climate and national dialogue around higher education, the implications of and historical development leading to the Fisher II decision, and much more.
