School of Dreams: Yale Admissions
buzzed, B&W
At Yale University, the Whitney visitors asked about one of their top students who had been rejected. The admissions officer pulled out a page from the thick application packet, a multiple-choice form filled out by the young man's counselor. He pointed to the one question concerning the student's leadership ability. It had been checked "good."

"That put him out of the running right there, " the admissions officer said. "You didn't mark excellent."

Absolutely absurd.
