Q: Is it true that you have a deal to turn this blog into a book?
A: Yes. It will be published on March 2nd. And if GC is still waiting for admissions decisions, I will have to appear on the Colbert Report with a fake moustache.
Q: Wow, that's exciting. Will we have to read endless blog posts that we have already seen, or will the book include new material?
A: There will be plenty of new, depressing reasons why you should worry about your kid getting into college. But because I'm not great with deadlines, there will be a lot of tried and trued stuff as well…even some of your comments.
Q: I am a major celebrity. Can I write a blurb for your book?
A: As long as you don't expect me to help your kid get into college.
Q: Are you planning to reply to the Tiger Scholarship Mom, who left a comment the other day?
A: You bet. She made some great points – what's wrong with making your daughter write 67 essays if that helps her win all of her tuition money? I am hoping that she will share some hints with us. And maybe I can get her to help proofread.
