Penn Wants Face Time With Every Single Applicant

In a move certain to cause a scandal in a few years when “inadvertently recorded” interviews are “accidentally leaked” onto the internet, Penn’s Office of Alumni Relations has announced an initiative to speak with every applicant in person or by Skype. Currently just half of the students who apply actually get to talk to someone even vaguely associated with the school. Most excited about the program are kids wishing to escape from Montana, North Dakota, and South Dakota, where there were no in-person alumni interviews last year because no Penn graduate could conceivably live there.
