2000 applications every year. it is highly competitive. people are trying to stand out and get them. >> we're not trying to justify anyone spending $200,000 to cheat or fake profiles, but i think, when our parent supposed to do in this process? the children have over 4.0, they have really high scores on the act and sat another told that they might not get them. we don't even know how to define this anymore. we have the ones that we hope to get into. that a couple that we should probably get into. i think it's hard to define this. >> absolutely. there is no shame in asking for help. hiring and admissions consultant is like hiring a athletics goes for your child. what these parents it was like giving them steroids. set high expectations and understand that it might not work out. and be your authentic self.

9:21 am
is this a problem industrywide where it is a big issue? >> of course. i think i would love to believe that it does not happen, but it does. and i do know other providers who do this. who are unethical. he went to the extent of being completely illegal against the law. but there are other unethical players. again, we believe in honesty and integrity. we don't do those practices, but i do know of other agencies that do a number of things that i do not agree with. >> i don't think we should be agreeing with that at all. thank you so much for coming in. it is a very stressful process for parents. when i talk to parents, they will say will be just fine. it will be just fine. >> it is okay. thank you so much for coming in. rosemary, our weather will be just fine as well, right? >> if it's a little chilly now,
