Admissions rates of 6%? Kids applying to 32 colleges? Sixteen-year-olds with more impressive resumes than Fortune 500 CEOs? Has the nation lost its mind? Author J.D. Rothman, creator of the Neurotic Parents blog, shines a light on the insanity with laugh-out-loud wit and incisive anthropological observations. Between these pages you’ll find sections such as: Frightening Statistics, Shocking Pie Charts, Depressing Bar Graphs; Kumon Tips for Preschoolers; and How to Cash in That Ivy League Degree for a Sweet Barista Job. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll pack up and move your family to Australia, where getting into college is reputedly just like it was in the United States in 1972.
