This is the culture of mediocrity where everyone deserves Harvard, even the terrible student. Everyone on the team gets a trophy for participation even if they lose, just in case one of them feels sad for losing. EVERYONE loses now and them. The ones who pick themselves up are the winners.

I don't give a damn what her extracurricular activities or club memberships were. Unless she was performing surgeries in the jungle to undeserved orphans by candle light, a gpa that low is not getting into Harvard.

It's unlikely that her daughter got accepted to Harvard, otherwise, why would she be calling some other university. Perhaps she meant Haverford? If you say it fast, it sound just like Harvard.

it's been said before... but it's a tough issue. it always causes controversy to define certain people as better than other people [at something], even when it's completely true and factual.

"sense of steam"is what keeps you going and propels you forward. It is especially important in steam powered locomotives and jet propulsion. Well at least i tried, #20.

You know, a lot of people say that this generation is entitled because "everyone gets a trophy for participating so they don't feel bad" but I think that in a way, the opposite is true. Yes everyone gets a trophy for participating but kids are not stupid. They can tell that some kids didn't deserve to get trophies because they suck. They can tell that its not fair that kids who worked so much harder and were so much better got awarded in the exact same way as the kids who hardly did anything. And I think that, more than anything, that teaches kids to doubt any praise or awards they get because they have no way of knowing whether the praise is warranted or if it's just being said to make them feel better. It kind of reminds me of that scene in the Incredibles when the mother said that everyone's special and Dash replied "that's just another way of saying nobody is". Sorry for going on but I always think of this whenever I see people say that this generation is entitled for that reason.

As a kid I always got participation awards and felt like a piece of total shit once I realized that everyone else got one. For a brief moment I felt successful, then I looked around and felt deceived. TL;DR Even kids hate participation awards

Doc I agree run for president, but you have to go by Docbastard to let us know it's really you. Like sneakily say DocBastard 2016, after a speech or something. And then say your real name 2016 even louder to throw people off. boom fool proof plan. Just like Murr's fool proof plans in Impractical Jokers.:D

Elle Woods worked her butt of to get the marks and credentials she needed to get into Harvard. She didn't just waltz in there because her Mommy threw a hissy fit.

I would love to know what happens if they do manage to successfully report you - I'm sure the President in question has a lot of time for these occurrences... not.
