Born on third and think you hit a triple?

The amount of cultural capital East Coast UMC kids have over and above even UMC kids in other parts of the country is really amazing. It's the little things you're unaware of, despite thinking yourself well-informed. Even with two college-educated parents and attending one of the better high schools in the district, I had no idea how National Merit Scholarships worked and took the PSAT as a freshman and the SAT as a sophomore. Because the P stands for practice, right? :-/ (Yes, yes, I took them both again.)
