Transcribed verbatim at the NYU information session:
Parent: "I know you mentioned you had a four-year language requirement, but my son has taken every language AP and also every other AP offered by his school. So, what if he had an oppportunity like…okay, I’ll tell you what the opportunity is…to be the head anchor on a local news show, and the entire program revolves around him….would that be okay rather than the required four years of a language? And could we list that opportunity as a special award?"
NYU Dean of Admissions: (cutting her off) "Sure. That would be fine."
Unbelievable! Do you think she is announcing this at each school information session!!!
would you continue to blog when you return to la? you’re more interesting than people mag and certainly funnier than snl!
Did you write it down or is it permanently emblazoned in your neurons now?
OMG,I think that parent goes to my son’s high school ….
