    This is an interesting article about the college admissions process. It is rather long (4 pages...look for the continue at the bottom of the page), but informative. What I found to be most informative was the description of the intangible quality that an applicant might bring into the mix of the student body. Something that I have seen discussed here for some time. I assume that the Academy is above the money aspect, but not immune to the need for diversity.

    I thought about putting this in the "Most diverse class ever" thread, but thought it to be more appropriate for it to be separate.
