Hehe, I assure my so-called "access" is actually a lot more coincidental than that. The LOCI thing was something I overheard when I was physically in the admissions office waiting for someone to take me to the class I was visiting. The more recent news, well, it comes from a source that is pretty darn reliable, and I came across it in the context of discussing an entirely different subject relating to GW. Honestly, I'm not trying to be obtuse here -- I'm just uneasy about being too explicit in citing exactly what was said or who said it (read between the lines!).
