Where You Go Is Not Who You’ll Be

It’s that time of year when many high school seniors are deciding where to go to college in the fall. The admissions letters and the rejection letters have been received so that part of the process is over…except for the waiting list issue…

The college admissions process can be nerve-racking and for some, the desire to get into a specific school can result in elation or devastation. New York Times Op-ed writer Frank Bruni interviews lots of super-successful people who did not get into their first or second or third choice of colleges. Or some who did get into a “top school” but could not afford it. Bottom line: he says there are many paths to success, and rejection can actually be a great strength and determination builder. His new book is Where You Go Is Not Who You’ll Be: An Antidote to the College Admissions Mania.
