It’s April so that means that most high school students are beginning to make decisions about where to attend college next year. Some students, however, are stuck on wait lists at their desired colleges. This means that they might get in, but it’s unlikely and will only happen if enough students who are really admitted decide not to attend.

For one student, to Tacoma School of the Arts senior Grace Oberhofer, that waitlist decision from Harvard is pretty devastating. And so she’s doing her best to convince the school admit her.

And so she’s produced this video:

Goddamn that is awkward.

Please, Brattle Street, do not reward this sort of behavior by letting her in.
