For this second installment of Matt’s Minute, I decided to write about The Concord Review, a very prestigious scholarly journal which publishes research papers (generally ranging from 4000 to 5500 words) written by high school students. According to Wikipedia, “Having a paper accepted for publication by The Concord Review is viewed very favorably by university admissions committees, with the Dean of Admissions for Harvard University considering it equivalent to winning a national mathematics contest.”
