Howdy From The Middle Of RA Selection
Posted in: Process & Statistics
It's Sunday at lunchtime and we have a bit of a break, so I thought I'd say hi.
We began RA selection on Friday morning, with the official kickoff meeting. By 1PM the committee was looking at its first applications. Exciting!
As I've mentioned, we also work on weekends during selection. When I arrived at 8:30AM on Saturday morning, the Infinite looked like this:
...not a single person, the entire length of the corridor. It was a bit eerie, as I've never seen that before. But it's good to know that MIT people DO sleep!
One of the best parts of selection is the massive amount of food we get. Here's a picture of the corner of the selection room:
I swear I gain five pounds every time selection week comes around.
What can I say about selection in general? Not much, really. The applications are incredibly good. You are all amazing. But hopefully you already knew that.
I need to get back to it - more updates when there's something to report. Enjoy the rest of your weekends!
