Our admission officers read a lot of essays—over 15,000 each year. From these many samples of student writing we get a sense of the greater world, and more specifically, the students who become part of our community.
What we read on a daily basis is powerful, and it deserves a wider audience than just our staff. So, we decided to share what we are reading.
Twice daily throughout January, February, and March we update our Google Map with a quotation, shared anonymously, from an actual applicant. No names, no addresses—just perspectives from a sampling of the essays we read every day. View last year's map here.
We hope this project—at the very least—will help showcase the power of our applicant pool.
