How much do I love this girl for letting the New York Times take this picture for an article about the perfect, “amazing girls” of Newton, Mass? The admissions committees at the colleges where she’s applied ought to let her in just for this. And hats off to her mother for getting out of the way.
I have a feeling the mother in this picture wasn’t so relaxed fifteen minutes before the photographer arrived.
The article was so depressing, for so many reasons. Chief among them the knowledge that were I applying today, I’d never get into my alma mater. Not even on the wait list.
