I was planning on titling this blog The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse but worried that someone might get the wrong idea about who and what these four men are all about or even what may lie on store for them when they get to Yale or even what may lie in store for the rest of us once they put into practice what they learn while at Yale.
Way back in December--the 13th to be exact--thew ILC’s Yale panelists read the application essays, reviewed the transcripts and listened intently to the responses to the 10 questions asked of each of the applicants.
As usual, the cadre of applicants were all qualified and made the job of the panelists all the more difficult.
In the end, though, four were selected to be this season’s Yale cohort.
In just two hours from the time of this posting, the four will gather to start setting up this blog site and personalizing it as their own.
In the coming months we should read of their reading of the many thousands of pages of preparatory material, of their appearances before City Councils, their tutorial session where they will learn more about working this blog site, their dinner with sponsors and alums from Yale, their presentation to the School Board and their Orientation session to prepare them for their trip.
Stay tuned for more.
