EA Admits: Hopefully, you got Dave‘s email about the admitted student event this Thursday at 8pm EST / 5pm PST. I hope you’ll be there! If you didn’t get the email or lost it, let me know in the comments (leave your email address) and I’ll get the information to you. It should be fun and useful, and I know Paul ’12 and Hamsika ’13 are excited for it.
RA applicants: I know you’re all anxious for Regular Action decisions, but I’m sorry to say that I don’t have any announcements about a decision date yet. As always, I promise to let you know as soon as I can — hopefully soon! In the mean time, the Admissions committee continues to work towards Regular Action decisions.
Debate fans: The MIT Debate Team of Adam Goldstein ’10 and Bill Magnuson ’09 won the North American Debating Championships — “regarded as the most prestigious debate tournament in North America” — by defeating McGill University in the finals. MIT also won the Championship in 2003; MIT, Yale, and Toronto are the only three schools to have won multiple titles in the past decade.
J-pop fans: I’ve been reading MIT applications long enough to know that some of you will be super-excited to learn that Hikaru Utada was hanging around MIT, getting ice cream with Prof. Ian Condry. (If you are among those who are excited, you wil probably enjoy Prof. Condry’s course Japanese Popular Culture, being taught on Tuesdays and Thursdays this term)
