More than 200 applications for transfer to Quincy House have been received, with several late requests yet to be handed in, John M. Bullitt '43, Master of the new House, disclosed yesterday.
The large number of applications was unexpected, Bullitt commented. The time-consuming task of narrowing the number accepted will begin this week. A group of 80 upperclassmen along with 130 freshmen will enter Quincy House when it opens next September.
"Requests for transfer were on the whole very well distributed among all eight Houses," Bullitt observed. He noted, however, that the interest expressed in Quincy by Dudley House members was unexpectedly high.
Preliminary processing of the applications will involve separating them by Houses, so that no one House will lose a disproportionate number of its members.
