The Wharton Adcom Blog announced today that
"After three years of service, Thomas Caleel (WG’03) will be vacating his role as Director of Admissions and Financial Aid as of 30 June, 2008. In his role as Director, Thomas has been a passionate ambassador of the School and the MBA Program, and Wharton faculty, staff and students alike are enormously grateful to have had Thomas serve the School in this important role."
The post also announced that "Anjani Jain, Vice Dean and Director of Wharton's Graduate Division and Adjunct Professor of Operations and Information Management, will serve as Acting Director until a permanent Director is named."
The blog described Thomas superbly when it said he was a "tireless ambassador" for Wharton. I personally wish him well in all future pursuits.
I hope that Wharton finds a full-time director quickly. I am sure that Vice Dean Jain already has a full plate, and the Wharton admissions office alone is a full-time job.
