I can't believe this is a real story that is getting this much attention, but I just need to rant about how awful it is. Here's the story/video ---> http://www.today.com/video/today/51426965#51426965

Rejected high school senior: Colleges lied to me
When high school senior Suzy Lee Weiss was rejected from four prestigious colleges, she fired back in a controversial op-ed piece published in the Wall Street Journal, claiming colleges are lying when they say “just be yourself.” She tells TODAY’s Savannah Guthrie about the article, insisting it was “satire” but saying applicants are “being judged on things we cannot control.”



Discuss amongst yourselves.

I personally feel like this girl is homophobic, racist, elitist, and just fucking dumb. She's incredibly entitled and doesn't recognize the fact that she applied to REALLY prestigious universities with really low acceptance rates. And, she applied to like 50 schools, and got into a lot as well (I guess because she has two moms and adopted a child from Africa). But, seriously, fuck this girl, and fuck Today for pretending that this is a news and that this girl is speaking for the rest of white America.

Saw this a week ago, absolutely absurd but definitely written by a rejected highschool senior.

it's today's twitter culture. everyone's self importance has increased exponentially in the last decade or so. kid's feel like they're entitled to everything, and they've worked as hard or harder as everyone else. its a bunch of kids who've grown up being told they're special, amazing and perfect just the way they are and they can do whatever they want in the world.

If you write something like that it shouldn't be a surprised you got rejected from the best schools.

How does a girl that "smart" still say "it was a satire piece". It's "satirical", you dumb fuck. Good lord.

It's no wonder that this was published in the extremely conservative wall street journal. lol. She is unscrupulous, narcissistic, arrogant, ignorant... Her editorial does her more harm than good because it serves as validation for those schools who (rightfully) rejected her.

Her last ramble is the best part:
Quote:
To those claiming that I am bitter—you bet I am! An underachieving selfish teenager making excuses for her own failures? That too! To those of you disgusted by this, shocked that I take for granted the wonderful gifts I have been afforded, I say shhhh—"The Real Housewives" is on.

ah, go fuck yourself.
