The world is on fire in pretty much every direction right now. What makes you hopeful?

Can you shed some light on what discussions around diversity (specifically racial and socioeconomic diversity) were like in the Claremont McKenna admissions office? What do you optimize for? Given that there are only 300ish students per class, I imagine these conversations are quite difficult. I graduated from CMC in 2015 and would love to know more.

Also, if you happen to know any of the folks there now, please tell Megan Latta that Becca (the rugby one) says hi.

What a small world. I love a good r/TwoRedditorsOneCup situation!

Hope you're doing well. I loved that class. Valenza is awesome. I wish I had stayed in touch with him.

1) How do you decide which genre goes to which Postmodern Jukebox version of which song?

2) How do feel about doing a mashup of Kanye West's Power, Maroon 5's Harder to Breathe, and Britney Spears' Toxic? They meld together really well, and I think you could put a really cool spin on it.

Megan IS super cool (as is Marcel, for that matter). You clearly have good taste in friends.

I don't comfortable sharing that on a public forum, but I can only imagine that you have some opinions having gone through CMC.

Your decision to not share those thoughts on a public forum makes sense, but also, I think lots of the problems with college admissions could be better addressed if more of what happens in those rooms were out in the open.

And obviously, I do, in fact, have opinions (most of which end at me wishing I hadn't dismissed Scripps for being a Women's college as a high schooler because I would have done WAY better there).

But anyways, thanks for doing this AMA!
