The Muthaship: Colleges tell you, "Just be yourself." That is great advice, as long as yourself has nine extracurriculars, six leadership positions, three varsity sports, killer SAT scores and two moms. Then by all means, be yourself!If she had left that part out, Gawker would have left her alone.

mrlewish: Interesting how we rate ourselves on what job we do or what school we went to.All concerned sides are full of whiny self entitles biatches.To treat you like a human being I don't have to give a damn what school you went to, or what fancy job titles you have, or who you are or who you know.
Fano: What about her racist dig at all them undeserving minorities?
FloydA: ambassador_ahab: This tells me there must have been something else defective about her application.Its author.
lennavan: "Just be yourself" is just another way of saying "don't lie.""Like me, millions of high-school seniors with sour grapes are asking themselves this week how they failed to get into the colleges of their dreams. It's simple: "Yes, very simple: none of you gave a shiat about getting into the college of your dreams until a day or two before the applications were due.
Cluckity: Maybe she could get a job trolling Fark.This country needs more pageviews if the economy is ever gonna recover.
GAT_00: FloydA: ambassador_ahab: This tells me there must have been something else defective about her application.Its author.Since the WSJ is on her side, I expect she acted like a privileged little biatch and demanded admittance.
abhorrent1: Poor girl. Probably can't even be a stripper.
EvilRacistNaziFascist: Fano: What about her racist dig at all them undeserving minorities?Her complaint about universities making a mindless fetish of "diversity" was quite accurate, and the most sensible thing she said in the entire letter.
SuperNinjaToad: I see a future Republican candidate for Presidency in this youngin.whiny, envious, entitled, anti charity, anti minorities, anti gay and self serving.
T.rex: I just read the gal's original article. Its clearly intentionally self-effacing and humorous. And just look at all these people she successfully trolled. Plus, she got published. Well done.
Kingly Weevil: I didn't get into the graduate program I wanted because I didn't have enough research experience.Which we all know is code for, "He doesn't have any interesting ancestors."Clearly.
Gabrielmot: abhorrent1: Poor girl. Probably can't even be a stripper.can't wait to see *that* rejection letter...
Mike Chewbacca: EvilRacistNaziFascist: Fano: What about her racist dig at all them undeserving minorities?Her complaint about universities making a mindless fetish of "diversity" was quite accurate, and the most sensible thing she said in the entire letter.She also made a valid point about having to find some way to interact with adversity. She's a normal teenager living a bland life, and she doesn't have the resources to fly to another country to see how awful the world really can be.
scottydoesntknow: Herbert A. Millington Chair - Search Committee[CENSORED], Whitson UniversityCollege Hill, MA 34109Dear Professor Millington,Thank you for your letter of March 16. After careful consideration, I regret to inform you that I am unable to accept your refusal to offer me an assistant professor position in your department.This year I have been particularly fortunate in receiving an unusually large number of rejection letters. With such a varied and promising field of candidates, it is impossible for me to accept all refusals.Despite Whitson's outstanding qualifications and previous experience in rejecting applicants, I find that your rejection does not meet my needs at this time. Therefore, I will assume the position of assistant professor in your department this August. I look forward to seeing you then.Best of luck in rejecting future applicants.Sincerely,Chris L. Jensen
Mike Chewbacca: Eh, I see the letter-writer's very bitter point. In this day and age, kids HAVE to go to college or they're almost guaranteed a life of near-poverty. Going to college is the new normal, but colleges still think normal students have no place in their special snowflake universities.
Amusement: [s17.postimg.org image 304x175]What high school career counselors won't tell you is this, you CAN get college credit. College Level Examine Program offers over 33 examines to get college credit and it costs less than community (comedy) college.http://clep.collegeboard.org/While other students are trying to get into "their" college you've already got college credits. The real stink is you can start taking CLEP examines when your 16 years old.This sh*t is real and I CLEPed college humanities, Freshman English and other non-important stupid arse classes that cost thousands at the big "U".
