I’m about to head into the last meeting of this year’s MALD/MA Admissions Committee. The other programs’ Committees are also wrapping up the process, and either held their last meetings this week or are planning one last session for next week. (I should say that all the Committees continue to meet as needed to work on Wait List or other issues throughout the spring, but the sessions are less formally scheduled and certainly much shorter than the four (or more??) hours we’ll clock today.)
And, unfortunately, a major distraction looms just outside our meeting room. The Fares Center has a two-day conference on the Obama administration’s foreign policy challenges in the Middle East. Several Committee members want or need to attend. And who could blame them? It looks so interesting. But the process must go on, so we’ll make accommodations as necessary and plow forward.
Admissions staff will work through the weekend as we stare down the final stretch. I’ll keep you posted!
