    Thanks for all the heartwarming tips and
    headdesking witticisms, Dean Coffin. It really does brighten my day to come across a dean who is everything but an ivory tower elitist. Keep up the great work, and hopefully I’ll see you in a few months!

    I’d just like to say – I really enjoy reading your blogs! They’re nice & easy, fun reads (though perhaps I’ve stumbled upon them a bit late) and it’s refreshing to see it come straight from the Dean! Thanks!

    Although I have been late in reading these blogs, but they are just too good.Reading your blogs, I felt as if I was an active participant in the admission process.
