Having a chance to meet some admitted students was a nice treat yesterday. It’s fun to reconstitute the paper applicants back into real people.
And speaking of application reading/reviewing, our work continues. Monday to Thursday, there’s generally a staff member at home, tackling a mountain of applications. Since we had visitors yesterday, today both Liz and Laurie are reading at home. On Thursday, both Dan and I will be grabbing files. We also manage to squeeze in a little in-office reading, though some of us (Dan) are better at that than others (me — perpetually prone to distractions).
So, with everything moving along, I thought I’d share two quick notes today.
The first is that there’s a LinkedIn page for Fletcher that provides some information on careers of our alumni. Of course, it only reflects the careers of alumni who have linked to it, but it’s still loaded with interesting info.
The second note is that a current student let me know about a blog she has been compiling on India’s upcoming election, which will run from April to May. Shruti is a second-year MALD student who told me the blog analyzes election data, and she has been using the GIS skills she learned at Fletcher to aid in her analysis. Read Shruti’s thoughts during the lead-up to the vote on her Indian Election Blog.
