Admissions h4x0rs Facebook to seduce pre-frosh

Breaking Facebook’s Terms of Service by creating an account under the name Stewart Reid House, Admissions has started a Facebook Group called WesAdmits 2013, a place for pre-frosh to gather and talk about how cool and debauched they are.

Just kidding, pre-frosh. We love you. And I’d love you even more if you weren’t a constant reminder of how close I am to graduation.

    @10:06 – While I agree that it is slightly irritating, I think they’re just being friendly. I wouldn’t go judging them based on what they’re doing on Facebook.- another ’13er

    I joined and there are these kids friending literally everyone in the group. It’s actually kind of irritating.Also, people should leave WesAdmits and join the unsanctioned group for admitted students. I mean, who wants PSA to monitor their facebook pages for the next four years? – ’13

    So if ED applications were up 40%, did admissions increase the percentage they admit in ED, or did they defer a lot more people?

    I am very amused by the fact that one of the related groups for the WesAdmits group is called “Enough with the Poking, Lets Just Have Sex”

    We recently created a Facebook Page for Wesleying (you know, so you can become a “fan” of Wesleying instead of being Wesleying’s “friend”). Eventually, this will replace our Facebook profile, Wesleying Blog, which was made back before groups and nonhuman entities could create a presence on Facebook. Just like the WesAdmits 2013 group, the Wesleying Blog account does violate Facebook’s TOS. But we’re not violating the TOS while acting as official representatives of the University. :-PAt any rate, become a fan of Wesleying!

    there are already student-created 2013 admitted groups. I guess this gives accepted students another avenue to communicate not only with each other, but maybe with admissions? guess joining both the admissions-related and student-created groups brings the best of both worlds.

    Deans: Leslie Barry and Stephanie Lee, among others. Students: many of those that work in the admissions office, among others.I don’t know if the WSA was ‘consulted’, I’m not in charge of this. But I don’t see any reason for the WSA to have been spoken to: The facebook isn’t for current students, its for prefrosh.

    the deans had spoken with a bunch of current students about this, and they also spoke to parents and prefrosh about if they thought this was a good idea. it was approved.

    Not to be a pain in the ass, but if “Stewart Reid House” violates the TOS, then don’t “WesComputer Store” and “Wesleying Blog” do so as well?

    How exactly would this stop prefrosh from making their own group? Its pretty straightforward this is for students who haven’t been admitted or even applied yet.
