To the Editor:

Once again, the Yale College Council proves it is less concerned with improving student life than making seemingly “vital” issues over which it has no control or authority (“YCC OKs resolution on early admission,” 4/1). Admissions decisions do not concern current Yalies, and the Yale College Council should not intervene in an issue in which it is an empty voice in an already crowded debate.

It would appear that the YCC would rather squander its time feeling central to administrative issues beyond its control than addressing substantive concerns of student life (like more money from UOFC for student groups and better registrar accessibility, for example). We need YCC leadership that is more focused on campus life.
