Following last year’s tradition, here is a few applicants’ moment of fame on the MIT Admissions Blogs- send me a picture of you and your card, and I’ll add you to the post. :) It’s kind of a fun way to meet your classmates, and it’ll at least be entertaining to look at a year from now. I now know almost everyone who sent a picture in, and ironically one kid even ended up at that little brick school down the road despite posing with his card. Le sigh. I suppose it happens even to the best of us.
But without further ado, let’s roll out the red carpet for our first 3 respondents.
We start with Narce ’13, a proud 13-er (one of the 13(37)? okay, bad joke.) who may or may not like piña coladas and getting caught in the rain, I didn’t ask. He maintains that he is in fact NOT making a peace sign, but, and I quote, “as an otaku, that can only be ‘V for Victory!'”
The acute observer will note the Class of 2013 poster in the background and fantastically nerdy t-shirt, an excellent choice of attire. Kudos, Narce.
Next up is Nathan ’13 of Ponte Vedra, FL, who is actually one of my neighbors’ cousins. We’ve never met. We actually just found this out. Fun fact.
Anyways, Nathan goes for inquisitive look. Nathan, keep practicing. You will be making this face a lot next year at psets.
And finally we come to Sheila ’13 of Connecticut, who opts for separate pictures of the tube and card. Probably because they came at different times, but we’ll pretend that artistic emphasis was the goal. Clearly.
So send me your pictures and I’ll keep adding them to the post! Happy Valentine’s Day from MIT!
Oh, but wait! There’s more!
First off in round two, we have Richard ’13 from Brawley, CA, and “if you don’t know where that is, it’s ok (99.9999% of the population doesn’t).” I didn’t. I had to look it up on a map. I also tend to know nothing about geography west of Wisconsin, though.
Also, please note that his beaver says Tim. That is awesome.
Next up is Paula ’13 from Coconut Creek, FL, wearing yet another awesomely-nerdy-shirt-from-the-COOP-that-I-wish-I-owned.
And finally we have Maria ’13 from Cleveland, OH (where I actually lived for a year or so, fun fact) sporting the classic tube-card-card pose. Solid choice.
Alright, guys, unless you get me a picture in the next 34 minutes, you have missed your chance for a moment of fame on the MITty blogs. Hope you had a great Valentine’s Day!
Okay, Alex ’13 brought up a good point in that it’ll be Valentine’s Day for three hours longer in California than Boston in the EST. So I’m not really being fair in cutting off your picture submits. So just keeping sending them. It’s not like I’ll be asleep.
So speaking of Alex, he’s from Colton, California (I know where that is! yay Google maps.) and will likely be in for a surprise this time next year. Surprise! Boston is cold. Sorry to spoil it for you.
And Happy Valentine’s Day, again. Let’s see who can be the last person to get their picture in before Valentine’s Day officially ends. A contest to be last. That should be a new one for you guys.
