Student exonerates Admissions Office

In your Opinion article “Half-Pointless,” you indicated that admissions had made a mistake by admitting an unusually large class.

Though there was indeed a record number of applicants – by about one percent – there was a seven percent reduction overall in the number of students admitted.

Despite this intentional decrease designed to reduce the number of students in the class of 2010, the yield (the number who actually enrolled) was still higher than ever before.

It is not the fault of Admissions for having so many students decide to come here. It is the fault of our incredible faculty, welcoming student body and the increasing visibility of our campus in the greater world’s view.

Additionally, though triples and quads are not the preferred mode of living for students on this campus, there is a lower rate of reported roommate problems for people who live in those situations – just food for thought.

Finally, in light of the increasing popularity of our school – one we all chose to attend, I might like to add – Admissions has been even more selective in admitting students for the next year’s class.

They are not blind to our situation; they are also not magicians and cannot create change overnight.
