We accidentally marketed ourselves into a corner

We accidentally marketed ourselves into a corner: First, I’d figure out how to teach parents to understand what really matters and what doesn’t about time spent in high school and the choice of a college. Second, I’d push for every selective college to share one application and do a draft similar to the one they do for medical residencies. Every applicant ranks the schools they’d like to attend, in order. Every school considers all the applications, grabs the students they’d love to have in priority order, puts the rest into the “good enough” pile and lets a computer sort em all out as pareto optimally as possible. At least kids will go into their twenties correctly blaming a computer instead of mistakenly blaming themselves. [I thinking about a lot of these isues as we search for Noah’s second school (that’s right, second school and he’s 2.5 years old. Don’t get me started… sigh.]
