I interview for an The University of Alabama in order to review it for, so I have met a lot of high-achieving high school students. One student, told me she has friends whose parents require them to spend all day all summer studying for the SAT so that they can get 800s on the test. Another girl started a club to help students relax and have fun to deal with all the pressure in the junior and senior years. Ironically, she added "running a club to help over-achievers relax " to her own over-full plate of achieving. Neither student was among the 10% accepted. I told my daughter I didn't want her to make herself miserable to get into a school that was nearly impossible to get into. But I went back on that many times.

Art at its best.
