EA Blogger Application Decisions by Ben Jones

The results are in.

I just want to say on behalf of the committee that we are truly impressed with all of the applications (and there are MANY). Your collective enthusiasm is a testament to the success of this project, and Admissions Blogging Year 3 is going to be unparalleled.

I’ll shut up now and give you what you actually came here to get: the results of the EA round.

For a variety of reasons we have decided to take only one blogger at this time and defer all of the rest to the RA round. A big huge welcome to our newest blogger, Ms. Jess Kim.

Jess has been an enthusiastic member of our community for the better part of a year, and most of the committee members were avid readers of her blog long before she applied for this position. Her combination of thoughtfulness, humor, depth, and variety of content make her a great choice to help us translate MIT onto the web.

Congrats Jess!

And to the rest of you – don’t lose hope! Three more bloggers will be selected in September.

    Okay, I have deleted all of Jess’s comments in this thread because she told me to.

    And before I got to give snarky replies to Jess’s comments, too.

    Anyway. Breaking the trend. CONGRATS TO JESS! She totally deserves it. And I’m not just saying that because I’m in love with her. ^_^
