Sorry to hear it.

You have my sympathy.

I'm thinking about starting a thread about my daughter's devastation and depression at being rejected by her high school Varsity team. Seeing her pain and watching her struggle isn't easy. And, yes, like you I am mad as heck at the school.

It's interesting that you say he's taking it better than you are. After seeing the depth (and breadth) of my daughter's distress six weeks after her rejection, I now wish I had handled the initial disappointment differently. If your son is doing well, count your blessings. I would have heard that cliche as impertinently glib six weeks ago, but I've now seen how quickly a great kid can go down.

Your story is scary, and I'll keep it in mind as my high-achieving daughter applies to colleges. He really had a PERFECT SAT? That is amazing! I thought my kid would be okay with a 2200.

Crazy, over-competitive world we live in... I feel your pain. (And if you have any advice for prospective applicants, I'd be mighty interested.)
