Many applications to selective colleges get just a single read
from The Washington Post
Students aiming for selective colleges will agonize for days or weeks over every little detail of their applications. But often that file will get just one read, perhaps 5 to 15 minutes, before a gatekeeper decides yes or no. That is apparent not only from The Washington Post's observation of George Washington University's admissions shop, detailed in a story, but also from interviews with veterans of admissions elsewhere.
