Suzy Lee Weiss

I feel that someone should have warned her before she hit SEND on her computer keyboard. To put yourself out there like this brings much more negative energy than positive to her name and image. Does she want to be remembered for this for the rest of her life? If so, hey, knock yourself out. People, for some strange reason, love to be famous at any cost nowadays. What they don’t understand is the cost associated with fame.

She may have interesting points about the college admission process, but her op-ed wasn’t funny, and therefore not very good satire. She needs to take a few courses at her new college about what that really is.

What separates HER from the tens of thousands with the exact same resume on their application? There are hundreds of white girls her age that didn’t get in to her fave college too. She sounds like a brat and a whiner in my opinion.

I blame the culture of “everyone is a winner”
