Admissions Movie

Recommended Posts

I know the new Tina Fey movie is about undergraduate admissions, but I am still excited to see it.  I love Tina Fey and plan for this to be a great distraction for waiting on my own admissions decisions. Anyone else? 

 

I would love to be able to bake a pie and get accepted to grad school.  I have heard of a lot of parents going way overboard to get their kids in college, but hopefully by graduate school level this is not an option.  My own mother can barely tell people what I majored in and my father seems to think graduate school in an option to escape working in the "real world." 

 

Anyone have any interesting stories about how parents tried to get their kids into schools?

I was told that while Admission (the novel on which the movie is based) is an interesting read, it delves in melodramatic issues that take away from the book if you were interested in finding out about UG admissions. Someone told me to check out Mitchell Steven's Creating a Class for that purpose. I have not read it yet, but the sneak preview on Amazon is tempting me.  

On the other hand, the movie seems to have gotten a full Hollywood make-over from meldramatic novel into rom-com, so I'd say people are interested in it for the Tina Fey/Paul Rudd laughs. Who knows? Let us know how you think the movie is when it comes out :D
