Bringing Levity to the College Admissions Process

stanfordStudents are gearing up to hear from the remainder of their colleges over the next couple weeks, which always makes for a tense time for anyone involved in the application process. And we all know how admissions statistics have been going down every year with some top schools admitting less than 6% of applicants. Bearing that in mind, and keeping sight of the absurdity of it all (keep rolling with the punches, and you will find a school that's right for you!), it's refreshing to see today's article in the New York Times poking fun at the process:

"PALO ALTO, California — Cementing its standing as the most selective institution of higher education in the country, Stanford University announced this week that it had once again received a record-setting number of applications and that its acceptance rate — which had dropped to a previously uncharted low of 5 percent last year — plummeted all the way to its inevitable conclusion of 0 percent.

With no one admitted to the class of 2020, Stanford is assured that no other school can match its desirability in the near future."
