Applying to college is a slow and painful process.
Because it's really hard to get accepted, unless
You are better qualified than thousands, and their thousands. You know; the bank accounts in the Caribbean islands.
I had to study really, really hard for the SAT's,
In order to even stand a shot into any of the ivy leagues.
And luckily,

But it all pays off at the end, with a job at Price Waterhouse Cooper or Goldman Sachs, So that at the 10 year high school reunion you'll be getting the last laughs. What's really amazing though is that with all these great schools this country has to offer It's amazing that so many kids are still hanging out, smoking on the corner. Corrupting their minds with drugs and whores

While all their spare time should be spent improving their scores. Taking test after test after test after test after test,
Making sure their parents standards are met, and of course kept Forever and ever,
Until one day you too will grow up to be a...
