i was old enough to be the parent of 90% of the other admitted students there. i was tempted to pretend to be the parent of some of the ones who wouldnt stop asking ridiculous questions and shame them out of actually attending by saying things like "my son has a bed-wetting problem, and is addicted to nilla wafers. do you sell depends and wafers at the bookstore?"
i brought my wife, and she got so bored about halfway through she went back to the hotel.
This is hilarious, Rev! Don't give me ideas like this...I might try it, too.
Went to an open house at U of Akron last summer--about 2/3 of the prospective applicants brought their parents. I almost got blown out of the building from all of the prop wash coming from the helicopter parents.
