College Admissions Must Read Satire


What surprised me was 56% of the people who did the poll did not get it was a Satire. I wonder how they would react to the satire a Modest Proposal by Jonathan Swift that I remember reading.

Amazing lady. 4.5 GPA, Senate Page, 2120 SAT's and still rejected by the Ivy Leagues. She did get into a lot of Big 10 Schools. Her response was to write this satire, that is so true. Her comment about a fake charity is also true, a friend of my daughter's got into Princeton after founding a charity. 1227 comments so far.

If only I had a tiger mom or started a fake charity.

Great video of an interview with her where her comment, admissions is a crap shoot rings so true to anyone who has gone through the college admissions process.
