One of my goals for the second year of this blog was to intersperse some shorter posts among my usual long-winded (800-1200 word) entries.  It was an admirable goal, but up to now unachievable.  If anything my posts have become longer.  So here’s a change of pace.

On Monday ECA was mentioned, and I was quoted, in a column by Liz Weston on  Her column had to do with need-aware admission, and I believe she had seen my blog post regarding George Washington University’s admission that it is need-aware that was reprinted by Valerie Strauss in her “Answer Sheet” column in the Washington Post  back in October.
