    I hadn't seen this commercial until now. Made me cry a wee bit. :wub:

    If the link doesn't work (as I'm on my iPad), it's the Target commercial showing kids reading their college acceptance letters. I saw the shorter version on tv but this minute one is better.

    That is really touching. I love the father's face at the end. ;)

    That brings back memories. I went to boarding school, so we didn't open letters with our families, at least not our biological ones. Also, many of us had applied to elite schools, so there were so many tears of joy, or otherwise, on days when the big schools sent their letter. I remember all the Boston/Cambridge schools sent on the same day, and there's this cute picture of all of us who were Boston bound in the courtyard with our letters high in the air, just beaming with that special excitement that only comes with youth!

    Fun! :)

    I admit maybe a TINY reason behind my tears was that I didn't have that moment. I don't recall my parents asking me any questions at all about college.

    I love this commercial! :)

    I had a similar reaction when I was recently accepted into a MAT program this summer. My college for undergrad was fairly easy to get into (it has about a 67% acceptance rate) - all I really had to do was send in my transcripts. But for the MAT program I actually had to write an essay, have an interview, create a portfolio and the school only has a 26% acceptance rate so I really felt like I accomplished something. I'm not discounting my undergrad experience - I was thankful for the opportunity to go to college, it helped me figure out what I wanted to do after I graduate, and I saved a lot of money - but this college was my first choice since the beginning.

    How sweet. Some of our 5th graders are experiencing the same ups and downs right now as they wait to receive their acceptance letters for a special performing arts middle school.

    Great commercial. Thanks for posting. These inspiring moments remind me that it is all worth it.
