Last night, the Columbia College Student Council held a closed meeting to appoint a new class of 2017 representative. This may surprise some juniors, as the opening was not announced via a class-wide e-mail, unlike the 2017 council’s vacant position last year.

As IvyGate, Gawker, and New York Mag have picked up, some accepted members of the Columbia Class of 2017 decided to post their application essays publicly online (inciting Bwog to mutter “they’re making it too easy.”). Unfortunately, the files have since been deleted, but you can still catch some highlights at the linked articles. Frankly, […]

Barnard is mailing its acceptance letters for early decision applicants this week, and reports record numbers of applicants for the third year in a row. Congratulations to the Class of 2017, who now await their decision by snail-mail only. Believe it or not, future first-years, that part might be easier than using eBear. Statement from […]
