It's A Tough Year To Be A Valedictorian With Perfect SAT's And An Impeccable GPA / Jossip
It's A Tough Year To Be A Valedictorian With Perfect SAT's And An Impeccable GPA
— Wed, Apr 4, 2007 —

Sometimes, we like to make fun of the Grey Lady. Because, like most old people/things, the NYT occasionally sounds awkward or out of touch. And because, from time to time, their trend pieces sound less like actual trends and more like "things a couple of eccentric rich people are doing."

But today, we have to applaud them. Because today, they reminded us why a rolled up New York Times, tucked tidily under one's underarm, is the only appropriate choice for the discerning bathroom reader.

We are referring, of course, to the praiseworthy headline in today's Education section, which is equal parts accurate, informative and mildly condescending regarding the throngs of disappointed would-be Ivy Leaguers.

The headline?

"A Great Year for Ivy League Schools, but Not So Good for Applicants to Them."

One can only hope the droves of rejected valedictorians will get into one of their second or third Ivies, lest they be forced to suffer the indignity of attending their safety schools. Naturally, we're keeping our fingers crossed for Fieldston senior/Sindergarten founder "Josh," who—with luck—will bring his magic bus enterprise to the gated community at Harvard in the Fall, as opposed to the embarrassingly unprestigious University of Michigan.
