    the information session outlined exactly how the admissions process works. in terms of academics, they read through the applicant's transcript and count the number of as, bs, cs, etc. as well as note any high level courses. wesleyan looks for students who have a sense of contributing to the world outside of themselves, and spending their time wisely. the officer reads the essay, summarizes the story as it was written in the essay, writes down any adjectives that come to mind to describe the student, and grades the writing quality (weak writing, fine writing, or strong writing). two admissions officers give each application a numerical score for each section of the application. then the application goes to a committee, where it is explained by the admissions officer and then discussed by the committee, at which point the final decision is made.
