Yale: The Musical? Yikes!!!

This admissions video from Yale is getting around.  The New York Times Blog’s take on this adventure pretty much sums it up.  Please take note of the comments on the article.

Harry Potter, Glee, I just don’t know.  High School senior Lauren Edelson wrote an op-ed piece about her college search and she really makes a good point about co-opting pop culture in Admissions Marketing.

If the intent of  “Yale: The Musical”  is to gain attention, I am sure this will be considered a success, but I suspect just like other cultural trends, it will fade away.
