In an article published on December 1 for the Chicago Tribune, Gettysburg College was mentioned for hosting the orientation program for the White House fellows. The article discusses the competitive and intense nature of the fellowship, describing it as a stepping stone for super-achievers.
From the Chicago Tribune:
With 600 to 1,000 applicants a year, the program is as competitive as getting into some of the country's top schools, said Moelis, 52, a Stanford Law School grad.
Online applications for 2014-15 class are being accepted until Jan. 15. The fellowship year starts with an orientation at Gettysburg College in Pennsylvania, where fellows sit for introductory courses such as Military 101 and Health Care 101 and take part in team-building exercises using ropes, Moelis said.
