College Admissions Movie

Praise for In 500 Words or Less

The film is outstanding–simply outstanding.

Doris Davis, Associate Provost,  Cornell University

Sensitively told and beautifully crafted, this film will enlighten anyone who sees it, especially high school students and their families, the educators in their lives, and the admissions professionals who seek and select them.

All of us found it absolutely riveting….this is a really important film

Dr. Holden Thorp, Chancellor, University of North Carolina

We viewed the film at Smoky Hill today with over 600 seniors and several staff members.  You cannot believe how well it was received.  The kids applauded…several times throughout the movie.  I knew the kids would like it, but never did I anticipate to this extent.  It was a Grand Slam!   Thank you for your insight, artistry and persistence in getting these stories told.

Robert F. Kennedy, Counselor, Smoky Hill H.S.  Aurora, Colorado

In 500 Words or Less does a fabulous job of portraying the dimensions of this important and frequently stressful decision.

Dr. Kathleen Galotti, Carelton College and author of Making Decisions That Matter

The film is honest, sensitive, non-judgmental, heart breaking, and provocative. I thoroughly enjoyed it and can see this as a valuable resource for families engaged in the college decision process.
