    I'm confused. This is news that colleges look for students with strong academic and personal backgrounds?

    All I see is a privileged white girl who didn't do anything of note and is not upset she didn't get into the universities of her choice.

    I'd love to give her a chance to reject me.

    That should have been the essay attached to her applications.

    Some people go to Ivy League schools and some go to community college. Accept your fate. She must have lived under a rock of she didn't realize how this would end.

    Maybe she can go to Booze U. now where they take anyone who can pay, where she'll be the "brick" of a mediocre fraternity.

    Just go to the school that accepts you and work hard. It doesn't matter where you go.

    In five years this bitch will be complaining about her student loan debt and demanding a bailout and a six figure salary for her women's studies degree from a state school.

    Apparently no one realizes she's making a mockery of the selection process. As just a Plane Jane white middle-class girl she didn't get offered all the bullshit undeserved opportunities that minorities and kids with Helicopter Parents get. BECAUSE DIVERSITY!

    I don't get her point. Is it that everybody should go to Harvard?

    So she's admitting that she did nothing above and beyond to get into her dream college, and complaining they didn't accept her anyway?

    Would it still be her dream school if they let everyone with a 2.5 GPA and a 900 SAT score in?

    I think she's in reality accepting her fate that she didn't do anything above and beyond to get into an Ivy League school, I doubt her parents (or her) could afford it anyway. She even labels herself a "An underachieving selfish teenager making excuses for her own failures." Calling out the colleges who just accept "diverse" students who do controversial things like possess a lot of melanin, announce their gayness, or demand to wear religious headdresses in school is a great observation.

    I don't recall colleges lying to me for years and telling me to be myself. They told me to have a good act score, high gpa, extracurriculars. Maybe she should be upset at her guidance counselor for misleading her.

    Yeah that part I agree with... no college should consider something you have no control over (race, sex, etc).

    It's an observation I've seen made several hundred times, on wackbag alone. Just because it's true doesn't mean it's "great". Especially if it takes y0u ten paragraphs to make it.

    Are you a 17 year old high school senior? Believe me, I've seen some of the tripe that high school kids write, and I'd say she's ahead of the curve in her maturity and writing ability. Writing on Wackbag is one thing, but have you been published by the Wall Street Journal?

    Just because it was published in WSJ doesn't make it great either. You did a better job with her point in three sentences than she did with an entire article.

    Though I look forward to her follow up in five years, To (All) the Companies That Rejected Me.

    I'm often published on the prestigious site called wackbag.com. Not as much as Liddy but still a decent amount.
