College Admissions Process in the US/the Future of Education


In the new Podcast episode, Emir Karabeg and Greg Kaplan, Founders of Artis, talk about the college admissions path to build an Artis application.

The college admissions process in the US is long, difficult, arduous, and expensive. Admission rates for colleges and universities in the US have dropped significantly over the past 10-20 years, many students accrue hundreds of thousands of dollars in student loans over the course of their 4-year education to find no return on investment (no job after college), and, due to the falling enrollment of students in smaller or less renown universities, about a third of all colleges in the US are at risk of closure. It’s time for disruption, and it’s time for Artis to change the way we view education.

About Emir and Greg

Emir Karabeg founded a cryptocurrency startup two years ago that ran successfully until its closure earlier this year. Along with running Big Rock Mining, Emir taught himself how to code in native applications and have been since. Last year, before his senior year of high, he found Greg through mutual connections to be his college admissions counselor – since he heard Greg was the best around. Since their first consult when Greg mentioned the idea behind Artis they have been working together.

Greg Kaplan is a college admissions strategist and author of Earning Admission: Real Strategies for Getting into Highly Selective Colleges. He draws on his experiences as an investment banker and lawyer to guide students through the admissions process and develop skills necessary for long-term success. An educator at heart, Greg encourages students to pursue their passions, increase their impact in their communities, write persuasively about themselves, and develop skills and perspective that admissions officers, graduate schools, and employers covet.

Greg is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania Wharton School of Business and UC Irvine School of Law, where he received close to a full-tuition scholarship. After graduating from college, Greg worked at some of the largest private equity firms in the world, where he was responsible for creating additional value for investors. He then earned his J.D. and shortly after opened his college admissions advising practice. Greg is fluent in Spanish and Portuguese.
