"Hosted by Mark Oppenheimer, the podcast contends that fundamental aspects of the Ivy League admissions process today – from the interviews to the need for geographical diversity – were all initially put in place to ensure only the “good”, assimilable Jewish students were accepted. Gatecrashers raises interesting questions about the meaning of diversity, and also points to some parallels happening right now with the way Asian American students within the Ivy League system are treated."
