What Ivy League Admissions Recruiters Really Want To See

On February 28th, I attended the “Opening the Ivory Tower: Admissions Officers on Defining and Recruiting First-Generation Students” panel at Brown University’s 1vyG Conference.

Dartmouth, Yale, Harvard, and Brown recruiters told the crowd exactly what to wish to see in student applications. And although the panel focused on the subject of first-generation, their tips for applying to an Ivy League university were universal and applicable to any student interested in a top 50 school. I’ve listed them below. 

Admission recruiters names changed to their representative school names, for privacy and ease of reading.

Here are the profiles of Division 2 and 3 Officers + Hasuike Kaede. You may not like these guys for certain reasons, even though all they did was following Misako’s orders, but this is not an apologist post. What I mean to say is that they have pretty interesting stuff in their profiles. They kind of have potentially good backstories implied here for the characters who barely had any lines in the series.

Bellow you’ll find the following profiles:  

[Division 2]


  • Hasuike Kaede (Division 1)
  • Yamatoya Akira
  • Hatano Kouichi (Division 3)

[Division 3]


  • Doumoto Shuuichirou
  • Suzuki Moe


  • Haga Takayuki
  • Shinjou Kaname
  • Hyoudou Tetsuya

The Peer Advocates are a group of high school students who are trained by health educators at Planned Parenthood Los Angeles to serve as resources for sexual and reproductive health information in their schools and communities.

We asked the Peer Advocates about the most common misconceptions of teens and what they would like people to know about them. Here is what they said!


My fellow college students and school faculty of the Philadelphia area: please be aware. I received an emergency text from my school warning us of a threat against a university near Philadelphia tomorrow October 5th, 2015. Due to the increase in school shootings, take this very seriously for your own safety. Be aware of your surroundings tomorrow and stay close to any emergency exits or hiding places. Stay close to your peers and report any suspicious activity you may witness. I hope you are all safe tomorrow

LGBTQ* Gallop Polls (You May Have Missed)

2012’s Gallup Poll: 

“Do you, personally, identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender?”

3.4% of those you participated said “Yes”

On the Poll’s Wording:

Being ignored and not finding your representation is not empowering and can lead to many voices not being recorded. No one should be erased. Sadly, many people believe LGBT(Q*) is the most inclusive way to ask everyone who does not identify as cis- and heterosexual. We need a more inclusive way to ask these questions and properly document and record our neighbors. Do you have any recommendations on better wording? 

Note: I, Rebecca, am knee deep in statistics for an upcoming KNOWhomo (Kh) project. If you have participated in any Campus, University , School, or Community Polls, similar to this, feel free to send me information. And as always:  Keep On, Keeping On!
