Kim Hunter '86
, an Associate Director of Admissions at MIT and the Director of the Educational Council ran the Mock Admissions Workshop on Wednesday, June 18. It was a learning experience for everyone, and we got a glimpse of what an admissions officer goes through. Thanks to Lucinda Linde '82
for putting together this article!
About 40 MIT Boston area alums read three anonymized, real applications and had to decide which one to admit, which one to defer and which one to deny. We divided in “committees” of 6 or 7 and debated the pros and cons of each student and came to a consensus within our committee. It was tough because each student would bring something very valuable to an entering class. We all learned a lot about how to look beyond the grades at the person behind the application. Then Kim took a tally of all the committees. I won’t tell the ending, because that would be a spoiler!

The Club of Boston’s 7th annual Science Trivia Challenge on April 17, 2013 was another resounding success. Twenty-four teams - school-age and adult –joined Club volunteers and moderator Professor Walter Lewin for an evening of trivia ranging from bosons to biofuels to broccoli! Each year, the four top-scoring teams enjoyed a meal with MIT Nobel Laureates, luminaries like Jerome Friedman, Robert Horvitz, Wolfgang Ketterle, and Phillip Sharp.
This coming year we add a new twist to our game: regular MIT and science trivia directly to your e-mail inbox! If you joined us in April, keep playing along. If you’re new to the Challenge, join us now! Once a month, MIT-specific and general science trivia questions will be included in the Club newsletter.
