    Applying to college is one of the most stressful parts of high school, wrought with a lot of angst and confusion about your future.

    While certainly Weiss should have applied herself more in high school and worked harder (she admits to not having been a big achiever), the disappointment upon receiving those rejection letters can be crushing, and a lot of us had similar thoughts as she did when we got those thin envelopes.

    Fortunately, however, we did not have a forum in which we articulated our bitter thoughts to a national audience, and most of us got over our disappointment and went on to do great things with our education, even if we weren't doing it from the springboard of our first choice college.

    I feel more sorry for her that she embarrassed herself. She's not different than a lot of us. The only difference is that she exposed herself at a bad moment for all to see.
