Joie Jager-Hyman, author of Fat Envelope Frenzy
(Harper 2008) has just told me that a new college-admissions reality TV show is in the works. It will based on her book, which follows five high school students through their quest for Harvard admission. (See CC discussion here: http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/college-admissions/470458-fat-envelope-frenzy-new-book.html
Of course, the erstwhile high school students who starred in Fat Envelope Frenzy
are already halfway through their college careers (at Harvard ... or not). So the show's producers are seeking current Ivy wannabes to fill those roles.
So ... if you are ...
-a high school junior right now
-living in the Metropolitan New York City area (NYC or nearby in CT or NJ)
-planning to apply to Ivy League colleges (and think you've got a decent shot at getting in)
-willing to let the world watch you go through this process
Then read this information below, and complete and submit the questionnaire (with a photo) by MARCH 1
