Raising the Bar~ Applying to Harvard

An interesting little op/ed using some of that pesky math again...  Anyway, worth the read.

I've apparently been in the active 'applying to Harvard' category for the last year.  No wonder jobhunting been difficult.  I didn't even bother to apply there for my undergrad, well, because I knew I didn't have a snowball's chance in hell.  I guess I've raised my expectations of myself.  ha ha!
