Shameless thievery from a colleague’s blog topic (sorry Matt).
There are a great many more of you that were deferred that admitted. I’m sure that receiving the news that you are deferred has to be disappointing (to say the least) to all of you. Please take heart in knowing that you still have a shot at MIT. Unlike Langston Hughes’ poem A Dream Deferred, your dream is still alive. Let’s talk about it, openly, and honestly. Please let me know how I can help to put it into a perspective that helps you see the situation from a strategic and global vantage point. Before you respond to me, be sure to read the post by Dean Marilee Jones on the TIM Blog. If it doesn’t resonate with you, then your heart pumps ice water.
Please post and let’s chat!
