Beautiful snowfall by Matt McGann '00

A nice snowfall today in Boston.


The view outside my apartment window this morning, as I sat down at my desk to read applications.

Coming shortly: Questions Omnibus.

    wow beautiful scene….

    by the way, I was reading the Times magazine on the Persons of the Year (2005) and I found a picture of Bono at MIT writing this equation on a blackboard:

    DA + TA + B + MIT = Progress for the poor

    (D-debt; A-AIDS; T-trade; A-Africa; B-Bono; M-Massachusetts; I-Institute of; T-technology=)

    the double acronym DATA is also the name of Bono’s own humanitarian organization

    I am excited to know that MIT has such a reputation for its humanitarian involvements and its projects that change the world.

    At last Matt, started reading our applications I am very nervous!!! will those be read in a order of submission? If it so I will be lucky As I had to forward an optional essay for admisions.

    Heh, never touched snow in my life. This may have something to do with the fact that I live in the Middle East, but then again, I may be wrong. raspberry

  6. That picture is amazing!

    Here in my hometown the coldest weather possible is at 14C and very sunny. And as Arka I have never seen a snowfall.

    Have a nice day Matt, and take care, you may catch a cold!

    I’ve seen snow in my home country, but I’ve moved to and lived in the tropics for 7 years now, so I haven’t seen any snow. If MIT accepts me, the snow will be a plus!

    Snow is an amazing thing. I’ve seen it once! I am from San Diego, and it rarely rains here.
