Hundreds of thousands of students each year dream of going to an elite, highly selective university, but only a select few will actually get in. I was lucky enough to interview a student from George Ranch who was accepted into one of the top schools in the country. Here’s what this person had to say.

The Wrangler: How does it feel to be so much smarter than everyone else?

Elite Student: Nice. It feels good. Sometimes it sucks because no one can compare to me.

The Wrangler: Is it difficult to walk among the plebeians?

Elite Student: Yes. I’m a really nice person but most of you won’t reach your goals. My genius comes naturally, these people try to force it.

The Wrangler: When did you know you were better than everyone else?

Elite Student: Like always. (laughter). I don’t know, since I was born, you know?

The Wrangler: You received a full scholarship, but still have to pay $2,200. How tough will that be?

Elite Student: Honestly I don’t think that I’ll make it. It’s going to be a trying year for me.

The Wrangler: Are you condescending and rude naturally, or is it a learned skill?

Elite Student: It’s natural and then I just developed it some. I really refined my skills of condescension.

The Wrangler: Do you have any advice for the rest of the mediocre students?

Elite Student: You’re not going to be a doctor, lawyer or engineer.
