Is anyone else laughing at people being "outraged" by Andy Bernard appearing on the law school home page? I think they are having a little fun at the pop culture reference, and trying to be in on the joke. No one actually applied to Cornell based on a joke from The Office. Right?
because of a television show would just be silly.
....they also give me a fee waiver
EDIT: I think it is all a big hype for next season of the office, when Andy returns to Cornell to go to law school. That is where the tuition increases are going: to pay for that to happen.
EDIT #2: From that article posted:
Geiger said Wednesday night that he has been quoted accurately as saying that he can't explain the magnitude of the increase, but that a handful of applicants responded to the question about why they were applying to Cornell by citing the Andy Bernard character.
Seriously, did anyone write that on their application? It gives you a 'why Cornell' box to fill in when you apply....but did people honestly say that???
