NY Post - Accepted to Harvard? Shhh, don’t tell anyone! In an attempt to ease the blow of a student’s first big rejection, New York prep schools are instituting dress codes and Facebook guidelines barring excited seniors from broadcasting their acceptance to top-tier colleges because it would hurt their classmates’ feelings. At the hyper-competitive Horace Mann School, students are not permitted to wear college apparel, including status Ivy League sweatshirts, on campus until after May 1, when most students have settled on what school they’ll attend.And at the Packer Collegiate Institute, students are instructed not to update Facebook with university news until after school lets out. “It can be bad and it can get weird,” said Darby McHugh, college coordinator at Bronx HS of Science. “We send a notice out to all faculty telling them, ‘Please don’t congratulate students in public, no high fives, no hugging, and please be sensitive so that if you see someone crying, you refer them to the college-adviser office immediately.’ ”


“Well I got news for you Mr. Brown, you haven’t heard the last of me. You may think I’m shit now, but someday you’re gonna be sorry you cut me. I’m gonna catch on somewhere else and every time that I pitch against you I’m gonna stick it up you’re fuckin’ ass!”


I love it. Honestly how stupid are school administrators? Anybody with a brain knows the best thing in the world for somebody is rejection or defeat. That’s what makes you work harder. That’s what makes you want it more. That’s what makes you lift all them weights in the offseason. Being told by somebody that you ain’t good enough. Jordan not making his high school basketball team. Brady not getting drafted till the 7th round. People being told they are too small, too slow etc. Whatever the case may be rejection is the great motivator. It’s what fuels your fire to get better. If you protect kids from rejection all you are left with is a bunch of fat, complacent spoiled slobs who think they are the best at everything because nobody has ever told them different. The pussification of America continues indeed…
