<p>Interview</a> of Duke University President Brodhead--????? <a href="http://www.4ewriting.com%5B/url%5D">www.4ewriting.com</a></p>

<p>The President of Duke University obviously cannot tell the difference between admittance and enrollment.</p>

<p>This reads to me like it was translated back to english, lots of grammar errors that I am sure are not the exact words of Brodhead.</p>

<p>This does sound like a paraphrase of what Brodhead would say, especially by a chinese speaker. I'd say it's likely that the interviewer was using shorthand or making notes because Brodhead talks really fast. Then he went back later and filled in the blanks with what he remembered or understood. In this case, I can certainly understand what chinese term he must have been thinking of and how he could have mixed up enrolled and admitted.</p>
