While most colleges and universities notify admitted students with a letter or email, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology is imagining a world in which students are notified by drone.
MIT’s Dean of Admissions Stu Schmill stars in a short two-minute , which shows the university's famous Great Dome opening to release hundreds of pilotless aircrafts. Schmill says the video was fun to produce.
“It is unlikely that we will send any drones for real to admit students this year,” Schmill told WGBH's On Campus in an old-fashioned electronic message. “We do know that waiting for admissions decisions can be stressful for students and we wanted to lighten the mood a bit.”
