David Ong on the subtle role of beauty in college admissions

An interview at the 2017 AEA poster session

David Ong is an assistant professor at Peking University HSBC Business School. He sat down with the AEA to talk about his findings on the connection between college application success and physical beauty, and his theory as to why U.S. schools have a beauty gradient (for some groups) while Chinese universities do not.
