Rough Week?

I'm so excited and thrilled for students that have had good news from colleges- we've done exceptionally well as a school and have much of which to be proud. But many of the conversations I've had with students and families inevitably focus on the disappointing news, a waitlist or denial, that people are struggling to reconcile.

My best advice is to take some time to mourn but do so while watching the video above. OK Go is known for their inventive music videos (Robert Altman and Alfred Hitchcock would applaud their single cut format) and this song has particular resonance for coping with bad college news. What pushed it over the finish line to make it blog post-worthy? It features the Notre Dame Marching Band - a college in Indiana - how could I resist?

Let it go, this too shall pass.
