Subject:        "Would Shakespeare Get Into Swarthmore?"

The March issue of The Atlantic (on sale 2/17) is being promoted with
this email teaser:

Would Shakespeare Get Into Swarthmore?
by John Katzman, Andy Lutz, and Erik Olson

The College Board recently announced plans to introduce a new essay
section to the SAT. The essays-some 2.5 million of which will be written
each year-are to be graded "holistically," on a scale of 1 to 6, taking
into consideration "development of ideas, supporting examples,
organization, word choice, and sentence structure." Three senior staff
members at The Princeton Review wonder: How would several well-known
writers (and the Unabomber) fare on the test?

Cheers,
Al Magary
