Profile Picture

Do you think you have pressures from your parents to get good grades, good SAT scores, and go to a good college? Patti Yoon would kill to be you. She can't even look at guys without getting in trouble. Sorry Cute Trumpet Guy. Good is simply not good enough. Assistant choirmaster violinist? That means your second in the state, not first. A B plus on an advance calculus test? Too low. Anything that brings down your GPA so your not valedictorian is NOT ACCEPTABLE. 2010 on the SATs will not get you into HARVARDYALEPRINCETON.
