“Dear Harvard” video applicant rejected from Harvard; settles for Tufts

Change of plans for all the overeager, under-qualified applicants to fair Harvard College: Apparently the writers of Legally Blonde lied — an entertaining admissions video is not, in fact, sufficient to guarantee acceptance. Grace Oberhofer found that out the hard way: making an entertaining admissions video, and getting rejected anyway (via The Crimson’s Fly By Blog).

We last heard from Oberhofer in mid-April when she promised the world that “On John Harvard’s statue, [she]‘d never pee.” Turns out that she’s attending Tufts, so she’s only a short subway trip away from defacing the founder of her dream college. I wonder how the folks at Tufts felt being so obviously a second choice to such a … passionate … individual.

    Surely Legally Blonde’s advocacy of admissions videos was ironic. Everyone knows admissions people hate those creepy videos.

    Her voice is shrill and piercing. Probably annoyed a bunch of adcoms if they saw it at all.
