U PENN'S DAILY PENNSYLVANIAN QUOTES DAVID PETERSAM ON HARVARD'S MOVE TO DROP EARLY ADMISSIONS

AdmissionsConsultants founder and president David Petersam was quoted in a September 13 Daily Pennsylvanian report on Harvard's decision to end early admissions in the 2007-2008 application season.

Petersam was asked whether other selective colleges and universities are likely to follow Harvard's example. Petersam explained that dropping early admissions is an easier step for Harvard to take than it would be for other schools:

Petersam said that Harvard was the only school that could make such a dramatic change in admissions policy, as it is unrivaled in its resources, political pull and prestige.

He added that because educational institutions tend to be slow in making changes, he expects early admission across the country to be safe for at least five years.

Even if other colleges don't follow suit, Petersam said Harvard's decision has wide support because it is thought that it will lead to a more diverse student body there.
