Young, Gifted, and Not Getting Into Harvard

I’ve done my share of ranting about the media’s focus on all the bad news in college admissions today.  So it was nice to see this article as a voice of reason in the "Parenting" column of the New York Times.  The author, a Harvard interviewer, points out that most of the kids he interviews won’t get in to Harvard.  In fact, he admits that none of his own four children will get in (they won’t even apply).  And most importantly, he reminds readers that all of those kids will still be OK even without a Harvard acceptance.  Thanks to Paul K and Katie K (though not the same "K") for sending it to me.
