haha, the head of the guidance department in my school (he went to Harvard and has been the head of guidance here for 20 years) was looking at my transcript and then asked me where I am applying to college. I told him Washington University in ST. Louis is my ED school. And he said "i've never heard of that. is it a 3rd or 4th tier school? i'm sure you could do better. have you looked at the University of Maine?"
and i was like "well, people who aren't too informed about the college process probably haven't heard of it. it's on par with cornell and brown." i could've sworn that he was about to punch my face in.
