You may have read Suzy Lee Weiss's op-ed in the WSJ, which read either as a bitter student's rantings about not getting into any Ivy League colleges or as a humorous but realistic article. It's true, I have been rather disillusioned by the increasingly competitive (sometimes unfair) application process where some students apply to every single top college, get admitted, and choose not to go to any of them. However, while I'd like to disdain the process, many who manage to get accepted are truly worthy and have impressive and respectable accomplishments to show. What do you think? Should high school students have followed the Tiger Mother approach? Or should they continue to "be themselves" in order to get into college?

The Choice is a college admissions blog created by The New York Times. What separates this writing column from others about the subject it that every year, it features posts written by students going through the admissions process. The Choice is an enlightening read for anyone who is going through the admissions process.

Although this should not be reflective of college admissions as a whole, it is very interesting to read about the stories of some actual college admission officers. Did you get rejected/accepted based on merit, or was it because of a factor that was not in your control? Click the link to read more.
