I know The Daily Pennsylvanian is well-intentioned, but when it wrote in a recent editorial, "Although having a considerable waitlist is important for schools to select the size and makeup of their incoming classes after accepted students make their decisions, there is no reason for it to be unnecessarily bloated," I was curious as to what its body of knowledge was for making that decision. I feel Dean of Admissions Eric Furda and the Penn Admissions Office might have a better idea of what it takes.

Perhaps for its next editorial, the DP could inform the engineers in the School of Engineering and Applied Science building a self-driving car that their code looks "unnecessarily bloated." Or the surgeons in the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania that the post-op patients look "unnecessarily bloated."
