I'm sure it's all related. The institute has wanted to shorten R/O (is it REX now?) for a long time, because ours is so much longer than most colleges, and you just can't fit both the social and academic stuff into that short a time, so they're always stepping on each other's toes.

I think the worse part is that the students this effects most are those who never realize that their experience could be any different. I don't think that most people have experienced being part of a community of their peers until coming to MIT-- there just aren't so many communities that strong in many places, so they come and get battered down with work, and end up thinking that that's all MIT is about.
