Sad News for CC Community: fallenchemist

We have sad news for the College Confidential community. David Krost, better known here as @fallenchemist, has passed away. David was an amazing contributor to our community, both as part of our moderator team and as member always willing to offer helpful advice.

In particular, David was very helpful with his encyclopedic knowledge of Tulane University. @TulaneJeff brought us the sad news earlier in the day with this thread: http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/tulane-university/1932445-fallen-chemist-p1.html

Our thoughts and prayers go out to David's family and friends.

It's helpful people like David that have made CC the great resource that it is, and he will be missed.

    He was such a positive resource and so thoughtful and responsive. As a grad of Tulane Law School & a former NOLA resident, I feel very sad and my thoughts and prayer are with his family.

    Sad news regarding the Fallen Chemist. My daughter and I always looked forward to his posts when going through the admissions process 2 years ago. I still go back often to see what he has posted and will miss his insight in the future. He certainly had an impact on my daughters decision to attend Tulane. The Fallen Chemist will be missed. RIP.
