Reed Class of 2011
|||||Bloc Party - Uniform||]|
Hello potential future Reedies!
I wanted to let you all know that I really hope you get in. That being said, the possibility exists that you won't. If you were drawn to Reed by the small discussion classes, the focus on how to learn over what to learn, the great books education, the intense academia and maybe even the wild side I wanted to let you know of a college I looked at - Shimer College. When I applied to Reed I was waitlisted, and I hadn't applied anywhere else because I knew Reed was the only place I wanted to go. But once I got that super thin envelope I realized I needed another option, and that for most colleges the application deadline had already passed. When I discovered Shimer i saw everything I loved about Reed - minus the climate - and that they accept applications indefinatly.... The new class seems to be finished around a day before classes start. In the end I harassed the admission office untill I got in to Reed, but if I hadn't, i would surely have gone to Shimer
Anyways I do hope you all get, but if not, take a look at Shimer. I was glad I did.
