Here are three real questions posed to the Neurotic Parent over this incredibly anxious weekend – one week before ED apps are due:
Q: What should I wear to my alum interview?
A: Whatever you like. All the alum interviewers we know have a story about the five terrific kids they recommended who were ultimately rejected. And the one weirdo they blackballed who was accepted.
Q: My favorite movie is Superbad. If my interviewer asks me about my taste in film, should I be honest?
A: It doesn't matter. All the alum interviewers we know have a story about the five terrific kids they recommended who were ultimately rejected. And the one weirdo they blackballed who was accepted.
Q: My main extracurricular is that I run our county's Obama campaign. I just googled my alum interviewer and found out she donated $4800 to McCain. What should I tell her that I do in my spare time?
A: Genome research.
Ricky Lauren also spoke about her role in her own husband’s career. She admitted she wasn’t that active in the business but, “I’m the matriarch more the one that, in the end says no.” She does not see the shows before everyone else as her husband is often accommodating surprise her and everyone “to create something the world is likely to love and luxuriate in and treasure and hopefully keep for many people, ages.” Lauren says her husband always asks what she thinks and she or he is often honest, “good or bad, as well as the most part, it is good.”
