At the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the admissions office is always excited about the day applicants are notified. There is extra excitement this year because that will take place on Pi Day (March 14, since it is represented by the digits that start pi -- 3.14 -- and which is notable this year as one can extend it for more of pi, 3.1415). But even amid all of that excitement, M.I.T. is imagining a world where applicants won't have to log on to a Web site to learn decisions, but will be notified by drone. While this video, released by M.I.T., features some simulation, the star of the first half is Stu Schmill, IRL dean of admissions at M.I.T.
