It’s pi day … with a twist

This is either incredibly geeky, incredibly cool or more likely a combination of the two.

Saturday is, as you’ve no doubt heard, “Pi Day.” March 14th, 3/14, 3 … 1 … 4. Pi: 3.14

It is also 2015, which makes it 3/14/15. 3.1415 is Pi to the fourth decimal.

Here comes the cool part (and if you’ve read this far, thank you).

Saturday at 9:26 am, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology is going to announce its admissions decisions. That’s 3/14/15, 9:26.

Pi to the 7th decimal?3.1415926.

Pretty cool.
