Paper applications for tech schools: a harbinger?
Patrick J. O’Connor, director of college counseling at the Roeper School, a private day school in the Detroit suburb of Birmingham, Mich., sent this amusing e-mail to colleagues on a listserv Wednesday, and he gave me permission to reprint it:
Colleagues, I offer a brief glimpse at my appointment calendar for your bemusement:
Wednesday, 8 AM: Send off supporting material for 180 electronic applications to a host of liberal arts colleges.
Wednesday, 11:30 AM: Send supporting materials for 6 paper applications, 5 of which are going to — wait for it — technological universities.
So ... do they know something we don’t?
Yours in cyberspace,
Patrick J. O’Connor, Ph.D.
Director of College Counseling
