Alums Speak on the Direction of Mount Holyoke College: Aparna Mekala '96

BY APARNA MEKALA '96

Last year I manned the booth at several college fairs in New Jersey. I knew parents and kids still follow the rankings pretty closely, so I asked Admissions last year about why Mount Holyoke ranked so low comparative to where it was ranked when I attended in the 90s.  The reason I asked was so I could come up with some type of positive response if a parent asked me the ranking question. Admissions responded that parents and kids never asked those questions at the fairs and they mostly asked about what makes us different from Smith. I never got a real answer from Admissions and remain disappointed.
