ABSTRACT
The article discusses how the admissions committee of the Sarah Lawrence College in New York selects applicants to be admitted for the class of 2014. It says that applicants who got top scores in the personal, writing and academics categories are easily admitted. However, the author says that the process is a bit complicated for students who get less than an immediate praise from the admissions committee members. Information on how applicants are scored and the factors that can significantly affect their admissions are also discussed.
