- Creating a "bidding war" between colleges who see their competitors on your applications list?

If there is interest I can also ask Ms. Deborah Fox if she'll join us online for Q&A.
In the interest of full disclosure:
- Ms. Deborah Fox is a brilliant, insightful, nationally known expert in the field with a quick wit and a winning smile.

If this presents an ethical dilemma please stop reading here.
