Personal Reflections

Buzz Aldrin, the second person to walk on the moon once said, “my favorite thing to do on this planet is to scuba dive.” While I’ve never walked on the moon, I share this astronaut’s love of scuba diving. I took advantage of our spring break and went to Roatan, Honduras for a diving trip (10 dives!) and return to IMSA refreshed and reenergized to complete our academic year. Today, I wanted to provide you several updates since my last personal reflection in February.

We welcomed the 2015 Admission Review Committee in March for the selection of IMSA’s Class of 2018, and I appreciate the time that our volunteers—from around Illinois—gave in support of this important process. Faculty and staff also took time out of their normal schedules to read more than 600 applications. The Admissions Office staff is now reading each one of the applications, including comments from the Review Committee in preparation for the Selection Committee during the week of April 20, 2015.
