Decision Letters and an Interesting Article

Congratulations to all the recently admitted students!!

I see that Adam has been providing some great information about the WPI decision letters that are just hitting mailboxes around the world.

I'd like to underscore that this was a very competitive year and left me with more difficult decisions to make than I have ever been faced with in my 9 years at WPI. No matter what decision you may receive from WPI know that we did enjoy getting to know you through your application and wish you nothing but the best wherever college takes you next year.

I've gotten a bit of feedback on some of the committee posts from a couple of weeks ago and wanted to share an article that appeared in the Boston Globe on Sunday. This article focuses on the admission committee discussions our colleagues are going through at Amherst and Tufts...it all sounds very familiar. A great read if you have the time.
