The JLE operates under the belief that grades are not as important as excellent writing skills, dependability and strong interest, so any student who plans on attending classes through Spring 2009 is encouraged to apply. We are accepting over 30 candidates, so our acceptance rate is very high. Moreover, you can be a member of both journals at Brandeis.
The application packet simply contains a personal information sheet and a small sample case for which you will write an abstract. Applications are due on Friday, April 25. If you have any questions, contact Kevin J. Graves at email@example.com. Thank you and good luck.
1. By the end of the week, we will put all the unclaimed wallet-sized photos in your mailboxes.
2. The draft composite is now back at the printers. Watch the door of office #182 for the hanging of the final draft -- to make sure the changes were properly made. (We may have it as early as this weekend, but no promises.)
3. Be sure to get your ERSS (those employment yellow sheets) into Career Services. AND, if you have information to add to your sheet, please come by and update us.
