  Check This Box if You’re a Good Person - The New​ York Times

- 뉴욕타임스(The New York Times)에 실린 다트머스 대학 입학 사정관의 글 - 

미국 뉴햄프셔주 그래프턴 카운티(Grafton County) 하노버에 있는 명문 사립 종합대학교 입학 사정관이 썼고

2017년 4월 4일 뉴욕타임스 Opinion에 실린 후 많은 사람들에게 감동을 준 글이 있습니다.


그 글의 내용을 요약하자면 이렇습니다.


" 나는 대학 전형 시즌이 되면 매년 2,000개가 넘는 대학 지원서를 읽곤 했다.

 전직 대통령 추천서 부터 연예인, 올림픽 선수의 추천서 까지 어마어마하게 많은 추천서가 도착한다.

대부분의 지원자들은 지적이고 재능이 많은 학생들이다.

문제는, 유망한 지원자들이 쇄도하는 가운데, 서류상으로는 월등히 뛰어난 학생들을 구별하기 어렵다는 것이다.

그러나 그 많은 지원자중에 만장일치로 입학을 하게 된 학생이 있었다.

이 추천서는 달랐다.

그 학생의 추천서는 다름아닌 custodian(관리인,경비)이 쓴 것이었다.

입학사정관 경력 15년 동안 3만 건이 넘는 지원서중에  custodian에게 받은 추천서는 이번이 처음이다.

빈 교실에 불을 끄고 나가는 학생의 모습, 직책, 인기, 외모에 상관없이

학교의 모든 사람을 평등하게 존중한다는 칭찬 가득한 custodian이 쓴 학생의 추천서.


예상치 못한 사람의 성실한 성격 평가는 전직 대통령이나 유명한 위인의 그 어떤 추천서보다

우리에게 더 큰 의미가 있었다.

내년에 이 에세이 덕분에  custodian의 추천이 쇄도할지 모른다. " 라고

유머로 글을 마무리 했습니다.


이 글이 왜 감동적이고 많은 사람들의 호응을 얻었을까요?

학생의 인성을 보고 대학에 추천서를 써준 고등학교의  custodian부터,

누가 보든 안보든 빈 교실의 전등을 끄고 나가는 학생의 주인 의식과

 직책, 인기, 외모를 가리지 않고 누구나 평등하게 존중할 줄 아는 훌륭한 품성, 그 학생을 훌륭하게 잘 키운 부모,

그리고 그  custodian의 추천서를 가볍게 보지 않고 옥석(玉石)을 가려낼 줄 아는 다트머스 대학의 입학사정관까지,

모두가 감동적이고 배울점이 많다는 것은 분명한 사실입니다.

회사에서도 마찬가지 입니다.

출근해서 경비실을 지날때 경비 아저씨께 인사하는 직원이 있고, 청소하는 분께 수고 한다는 따뜻한 말을 건네는 직원,

회사 식당에서 밥을 먹은 후 주방에서 일하는 분께 감사를 표하는 직원, 회의가 끝났을 때 뒷 정리를 하고 불을 끄고 나가는 직원,

다 같이 먹는 물통이 바닥 나면 늘 솔선수범해서 물통을 교체하는 직원이 있습니다.

누가 칭찬하지 않아도

누가 알아주지 않아도

아무도 관심 갖지 않는 일에 성심 성의껏 마음을 다하는 사람들이 있습니다.

일전에 접했던 어느 신문의 칼럼이 머리속에서 잊혀지지 않습니다.

미국에 있는 어떤 건실한 회사의 유능한 간부가 임원 승진 심사에서 탈락을 했습니다.

이유는 단 한가지 였습니다.

그 회사 경비원에게 불친절하다는 이유였습니다.

 이 이야기는 우리에게 많은점을 시사하고 있습니다.

그렇다면 이런 이야기가 오직 학교, 회사에 한정된 것일까요?


우리 사회도 옥석(玉石)을 구분 해 낼 줄 아는 '눈'이 많아졌으면 좋겠다는 생각을 해봅니다.


< 뉴욕 타임스 기사 원본 >

HANOVER, N.H. —

When I give college information sessions at high schools, I’m used to being swarmed by students. Usually, as soon as my lecture ends, they run up to hand me their résumés, fighting for my attention so that they can tell me about their internships or summer science programs.

But last spring, after I spoke at a New Jersey public school, I ran into an entirely different kind of student.

When the bell rang, I stuffed my leftover pamphlets into a bag and began to navigate the human tsunami that is a high school hallway at lunchtime.

Just before I reached the parking lot, someone tapped me on the shoulder.

“Excuse me, ma’am,” a student said, smiling through a set of braces. “You dropped a granola bar on the floor in the cafeteria. I chased you down since I thought you’d want your snack.” Before I could even thank him, he handed me the bar and dissolved into the sea of teenagers.


Working in undergraduate admissions at Dartmouth College has introduced me to many talented young people. I used to be the director of international admissions and am now working part time after having a baby. Every year I’d read over 2,000 college applications from students all over the world. The applicants are always intellectually curious and talented. They climb mountains, head extracurricular clubs and develop new technologies. They’re the next generation’s leaders. Their accomplishments stack up quickly.

The problem is that in a deluge of promising candidates, many remarkable students become indistinguishable from one another, at least on paper. It is incredibly difficult to choose whom to admit. Yet in the chaos of SAT scores, extracurriculars and recommendations, one quality is always irresistible in a candidate: kindness.

 It’s a trait that would be hard to pinpoint on applications even if colleges asked the right questions. Every so often, though, it can’t help shining through.

The most surprising indication of kindness I’ve ever come across in my admissions career came from a student who went to a large public school in New England. He was clearly bright, as evidenced by his class rank and teachers’ praise. He had a supportive recommendation from his college counselor and an impressive list of extracurriculars. Even with these qualifications, he might not have stood out. But one letter of recommendation caught my eye. It was from a school custodian.

Letters of recommendation are typically superfluous, written by people who the applicant thinks will impress a school. We regularly receive letters from former presidents, celebrities, trustee relatives and Olympic athletes. But they generally fail to provide us with another angle on who the student is, or could be as a member of our community.


This letter was different.

The custodian wrote that he was compelled to support this student’s candidacy because of his thoughtfulness. This young man was the only person in the school who knew the names of every member of the janitorial staff. He turned off lights in empty rooms, consistently thanked the hallway monitor each morning and tidied up after his peers even if nobody was watching. This student, the custodian wrote, had a refreshing respect for every person at the school, regardless of position, popularity or clout.

Over 15 years and 30,000 applications in my admissions career, I had never seen a recommendation from a school custodian. It gave us a window onto a student’s life in the moments when nothing “counted.” That student was admitted by unanimous vote of the admissions committee.

There are so many talented applicants and precious few spots. We know how painful this must be for students. As someone who was rejected by the school where

I ended up as a director of admissions, I know firsthand how devastating the words “we regret to inform you” can be.

Until admissions committees figure out a way to effectively recognize the genuine but intangible personal qualities of applicants, we must rely on little things to make the difference. Sometimes an inappropriate email address is more telling than a personal essay. The way a student acts toward his parents on a campus tour can mean as much as a standardized test score. And, as I learned from that custodian, a sincere character evaluation from someone unexpected will mean more to us than any boilerplate recommendation from a former president or famous golfer.

Next year there might be a flood of custodian recommendations thanks to this essay. But if it means students will start paying as much attention to the people who clean their classrooms as they do to their principals and teachers, I’m happy to help start that trend.

Colleges should foster the growth of individuals who show promise not just in leadership and academics, but also in generosity of spirit. Since becoming a mom, I’ve also been looking at applications differently. I can’t help anticipating my son’s own dive into the college admissions frenzy 17 years from now.

Whether or not he even decides to go to college when the time is right, I want him to resemble a person thoughtful enough to return a granola bar, and gracious enough to respect every person in his community.
