Tiger Mom’s Kid Will Be Blogging All The Way to the Bank, And Probably Harvard

The four people left on earth who aren’t totally sick of hearing about Amy Chua will be thrilled to learn that her daughter, the eighteen-year-old Sophia Chua-Rubenfield, has started a blog. Apparently practicing piano for eighty-five hours a week under the eagle eye of a tyrannical MILF is sufficient grounds for digital masturbation. (Eh, blogs have been started for worse reasons. A certain IvyGate managing editor remembers her eighth-grade LiveJournal and weeps.)

The blog currently features just a handful of posts, but it’s already got plenty of readers, most of them law students. Which is not at all creepy. And just in case anyone still harbors any illusions about Ms. Chua-Rubenfield’s aspirations–i.e., in case anyone still thinks she’d deign to go to Dartmouth–the Tiger Cub clears up the mystery of her college ambitions in her very first post:

To set the record straight, I applied to three schools last fall: Yale, Harvard, and University of Virginia. I was accepted to Yale under Early Action in December. I withdrew my application from UVA, and I was accepted to Harvard this Wednesday. I was shocked and thrilled to receive both acceptances, and I’m seriously considering both Yale and Harvard. Ashley’s or J.P. Licks…Toad’s or The T…tough call (although I am a huge fan of subways). I’ll keep you posted.

Hmm. Impotent football team or impotent football team? Red bumper sticker or blue bumper sticker? Douchebags wearing blazers and smoking cigars on bridges in Cambridge, or douchebags wearing boat shoes and smoking Parliaments on their dirty New Haven fire escapes? This will be the toughest decision of your life, young Chua padawan. Frankly, we’re a little surprised that the baby tiger had no interest in Princeton. (Except, if we think about it for 0.4 seconds, we’re actually not.)

    I’m sure she had no interest in Pton since she wasn’t a legacy there

  2. ivygate Says:

    She also had no interest in Princeton because she was already into Yale early and obviously made the decision that Harvard was the only school she would consider choosing over Yale. This isn’t uncommon and happens often when applicants are accepted early action.

    Pray tell, when did it become IvyGate’s policy to hate on Princeton whenever not reporting on a tragedy?

    I still don’t understand why she applied to UVA…

    Maybe because it’s a pretty decent school? Just a thought…

    it could have been the Thomas Jefferson scholarship. its pretty legit with interviews and everything. my friend applied ea to mit but also did the scholarship ordeal.

    Her parents both went to Harvard and both teach at Yale. She was a double legacy at both schools. No surprise. She probably would not have gotten into the other ivies, that is why she didn’t apply.

    She has no interest in Princeton because it doesn’t have a medical school or a law school.

    I don’t know why she bothered with UVA. She obviously was going to get into Harvard and Yale if she was a double legacy at both schools. Oh, and on her blog she mentioned she took the SAT (the scores for which she is keeping private) only once… Makes me wonder if she actually scored really high the first time, or she scored low/average, but didn’t care because she knew she was a shoe-in for Harvard and Yale.

    Princeton obviously rapes both H and P and this is coming from a Columbia student

  17. LOL Says:

    She was Double Legacy and her mom is a Professor at Yale. There is no way she wouldn’t have gotten into Yale
