Among the worst websites on the internet. A place to go where you can read about snotty geniuses who feel the need to brag in the ultimate attempt to make the "average high school student" feel pity on the themselves. An absolutely awful website that privileges and celebrates the Ivy League-Potential student, while completely forgetting about everyone else.
Jonathan from New York: Hello, my name is Jonathan from New York. I was wondering if I could get into any college in the entire universe with these *shitty* grades and these terrible credentials.

An online forum with elitist and nerdy, overachieving students who are constantly worried about whether they will get into a top-ranking school
A (hyped-up) example of a post on a forum in College Confidential:

OP: Hello everyone at College Confidential! My name is SuperAchiever5000. Anyways, WHAT DO YOU THINK OF MY CHANCES for the Ivies, Duke, NYU, and Washington University in St. Louis?

I have a 4.99 GPA and a perfect SATI, with eight SATIIs (including French, German, Spanish, and Chinese) each at 770 or above. I'm just worried that I'm not special enough. I'm president of the entire freakin school and have volunteered more than 500 hours at the local shelter and pound. I play the piano and the violin. I haven't had that many awards, but I did win the international math competition. Also, one summer I found the cure to AIDs.

Do you think I have a chance to get into my selected schools?

Reply1: You have a shot! Go for it!

Reply 2: I'd say match for the Ivies, match for WUSTL, but high reach for NYU just cuz...

Reply3: No way, Reply2! I'd say OP with those stats will get in anywhere!

OP: Thanks guys for the encouragement! Anyone else? Wish me luck!
