I sort of don't have the heart for this today

My son, Sean, got rejected at Northwestern. He's 5th in his class. He got 2020 on his SATs. He gets consistent 4s on his AP tests. He runs a 17:15 5K, a 5:05 mile, a 58 second 400. He's an amazing singer and actor, currently putting the heart and soul into a local production of "Annie" (it's kind of a heartless show, but he makes all his parts more humane than they have any right to be). He's an all-around good guy. Fucking colleges.

Oh no. That's so horrible.

Thank you. We are getting used to the idea. Sean is applying to more colleges and a couple of theater conservatories. I'm sure he'll be fine eventually.
