Yes, we has standards

The Dean of Admissions for some or other California liberal arts college, a fellow named Poch, has an engaging piece in Newsweek’s “How to Get Into College 2008.” The gist is that he’s looking for two things in the students he admits: (a) friendliness, or students “who will both work well and play well with others,” and (b) honesty. He claims to be very good at finding students with these two qualities, and I’m sure he is. What a jolly, earnest place that college must be!
