Making fair, smart, mission-driven decisions that keep internal and external constituencies on board is challenging. Faculty, coaches, alumni, parents, and senior administrators judge and define us by our success or failure in this crucial area. Armed with grounded, anecdote-rich illustrations and smart takeaways, this presentation provides you with sample rubrics for rating wisely, easy electronic worksheet options for insuring reader discipline, tactics for leading committee discussion, and systems for inoculating admission from "vocal constituencies."
