As an admissions committee we voted with a Red, Yellow, or Green card. That was it. Deny, Wait List or Admit.
Three votes Majority of 2 votes would win the day. Red – yellow – Green. The long winter days of January were filled with reading applicants non-stop.
February will filled with daily committees with Admission Officers holding up Red, Yellow, or Green cards at the end of a short presentation on each applicant and each school group Like a scarlet letter — a big letter A – WL – or D was written on the cover of each file folder, accompanied with a matching colored round dot stuck next to the applicants name.
THE BIG QUESTION HOWEVER — WAS THIS: How long would that GREEN sticker remain on that folder?
