Oh dear g-d that site is a guilty pleasure. Reading the chance threads are excruciating. Reading the admit threads are even more so depressing :/
Don't do it! College Confidential is a bad idea. Very bad idea.

I enjoy reading College Confidential. It boosts my self-esteem.

Physics is difficult for 99% of the world's population because they don't understand it. The other 1% know too much.

:| I've found College Confidential kills my self-esteem, especially the chance threads, which are all like "4.0 and 2400? Harvard is definitely a reach." It makes all of the top colleges seem completely impossible to get into.

College confidential is a great resource for select subject, for others it's where insecure students go to get validation.

It should have snowed instead. I could have stayed home.

Then again, it would have kept us from having our invitational tomorrow...

Ya'know, it is still amazing to think that someone that graduated from the same high school is me is going to play in the biggest game in sports in just a few days.

Regions tomorrow... long night ahead. At least I only have to be at school at 7:10, rather than the 5:45-ish of River Falls. :?

I think you mean long morning, assuming that's when you'll be up until. :geek:
I seem not to be able to absorb any more information after about 12:30. It's like my brain's hardwired to conserve memory...
