“There is a there's a narrative that says that if you didn't get into one of our schools it's because you're not smart enough… I could build an entire class out of my deny pool that replicates my admit pool… so it's it's one of these things where I think it's important for people to just know that.” - Olumfemi Ogundele
“How you assess rigor what the definition of rigor even is… that's something that's a really interesting conversation that we are having right now....” - Mark Moody
