Awww, Thank you, Xinlei.

Found on a Trash Can But Poetry isn’t Garbage. 
Disseminate!!! Think about this. Someone wrote this and tossed it but secretly hoped that it would be found by someone. I doubt they thought it would make it onto Tumblr and be viewed by 3000 followers. How marvelous would it be if he/she saw it? So, Disseminate minions of Admissions. Disseminate.

No guarantees but let’s just say that everyone loves helping people realize their desires, including us over here in Admissions.

Austan Goolsbee
Four years ago Goolsbee was the senior economic advisor to the Obama campaign. And after that succeeded he served as Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisors. Now, he’s the Robert P. Gwinn Professor of Economics at UChicago’s Booth School of Business. Goolsbee has been on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart enough times that his coolness factor is unquestionable. And his twitter can get pretty rowdy and witty if you’re into the whole politics thing. Here he is teaching.

Admissions Office here. Are we doing this whole mailing thing right?
There’s been a huge response to the letter we sent out earlier this week. We thought we’d share it with you. Big thank you to Maaz F. for uploading it to his twitter. 
Update: even more buzz! The Chicagoist  notes: “O.K., we will never (for now) call the University Of Chicago a stodgy, uppity institution again.”
