58 – If You Want To Be Different: Non-Traditional Colleges with Ashley Chen

College admissions is a great time to reflect on your future. That means that not everyone is suited for a traditional, 4-year education. On this episode, I’m joined by incoming Stanford freshman Ashley Chen to talk about alternatives to a traditional education from 2-year community colleges to service academies to colleges with just plain wacky admissions processes and educations (anyone up for cow manure and manual labor?).
