from Yale University




Hi LaMai-


The stats for applicants and martics [sic] are not available for me to give out;
however, I can tell you that we have some extremely competitive applicants for admission who have been homeschooled in the past.
Our application process is a wholistic one in that no one thing can
help or harm an applicant's chances of being accepted, and having been homeschooled
certainly should not by itself harm any applicant to the University.

I'm being a little deficient here...but what the heck are martics? I get that it was wrong but I can't even figure out what it is supposed to be.

And WOW...that letter actually came from Yale, eh? Not the level of highbrow I expected.

martics [sic] = matriculants, or people who actually enroll/register as students after acceptance.

Maybe that person is trying to emulate Yale grads such as George W. Bush.

I try not to give editorials on the responses, although some have been surprising. To be fair, the bulk of the responses arrive in my e-mail inbox, so spelling errors are to be expected...I think?

I'm stunned that a Yale representative misspelled holistic.
