Episode Description

As an admissions committee we voted with a Red, Yellow, or Green card. That was it. Deny, Wait List or Admit. Three votes Majority of 2 votes would win the day. Red - yellow - Green. The long winter days of January were filled with reading applicants non-stop. February will filled with daily committees with Admission Officers holding up Red, Yellow, or Green cards at the end of a short presentation on each applicant and each school group Like a scarlet letter -- a big letter A - WL - or D was written on the cover of each file folder, accompanied with a matching colored round dot stuck next to the applicants name. THE BIG QUESTION HOWEVER -- WAS THIS: How long would that GREEN sticker remain on that folder? Be sure to snag the free download that pairs with this mini-series www.drcynthiacolon.com/23 Episode 23
