Dean Furda, All Over the Map

New York Times blog The Choice, created to “demystify the process of applying to American colleges and universities,” will now also have some of its content featured on India Ink. And perhaps the only thing better than The Choice‘s South Asian expansion is the fact that Dean Furda, who you know from this, this and/or this, is part of the inaugural post.

Furda, along with regional director of Admissions, Patrick Bredehoft, chats in a mini Q & A intended to answer any inquiries that prospective Indian students will likely have about the admissions process. The run down: Penn is impressed by many Indian applicants and is down to continue increasing diversity. Also worth noting is the shout out to Penn Masala.

Furda Stars In New Admissions Videos


Penn’s Dean of Admissions Eric Furda released a new video series as this year’s apparent follow-up to PennLikely. Furda’s new YouTube channel, Page217 (haha– we get it), features three video clips: Dean Furda Intro to Penn, Finding Your Way to UPenn, and Making a College Visit where we see Eric Furda apparently giving our some personal student tours.  Who knew there was so much interaction?

In all, the videos are definitely a better representation of Penn than the our admissions page.  Furda’s hideous suit is the only thing we wish had been left on the cutting room floor.
