If you’re a senior planning on going to college, it is probably safe to say you have started, or at least thought about, your college application. If you’re really on top of it then you have already submitted your applications. No matter which one of these categories that you fall into, you have definitely stressed about them at least once.

My best advice to you would be to start as soon as possible so that you can reduce some stress, but if you find yourself overworked and looking for a break, I suggest watching the movie Accepted. This throwback from 2006 adds some comic relief to the applications game.

This movie, directed by Steve Pink, is about a recent high school graduate named Bartleby who creates a fake college in order to trick his parents into thinking that he got accepted into college. The problem arises when other students apply and get “accepted” into this fake college and all show up at Bartleby’s poorly put together attempt to make an old hospital look like a college. The movie shows how Bartleby handles this giant issue and challenges America’s view of higher education after high school

I believe that this movie would be a great way to make yourself less stressed over college, and is great to watch when you need a break considering it is only an hour and a half long.

I would not recommend this to be a family movie night movie because it is rated PG-13 due to foul language and teen alcohol use, although it is in the comedy/teen genre.

Although the script was a little cheesy, this was still a good movie to get my mind off things and I would recommend it to anyone who wanted to do the same. The flick is available online in many places, including Netflix and Amazon.
