Accepted (2)

      Yes, my friend Katelyn has been accepted to Medical School. To honor her I wrote this review. My review of the week will be appropriately a 2006 comedy called Accepted. I hopefully will be doing more work than in this makeshift college, but you never know. 

       The plot of this movie is very simple. Bartleby Gains (Justin Long) has been rejected by eight colleges. As a result he makes up a college. He turns a former mental institution into a make shift college. Where classes include slacking off, meditating, and skateboarding. The students are the teachers and none other plays Lewis Black the dean of students then. 

       This movie is funny it made me laugh a few times. It has everything a college comedy should. It contains a slacker student, a hot blonde, and an annoying little sister. This movie was no Oscar winner nor should it be. It was just what the doctor ordered however on this cold rainy Sunday morning. It was just the write mix of comedy and tension.  

     This is one movie I will talk about at the water cooler tomorrow. It was well written, well acted and enjoyable to watch. I liked it from start to finish. GO rent it and decide for yourself however. This is a comedy that must be seen.

                                                                                                                                                                                                    Grade B

A note from an editor!

Hi Matthew,

Thank you for the time and effort you put into this piece, especially on a Saturday morning. I can tell you definitely took good notes of everything that was going on during the event!

We still have some work to do before this piece is ready to print. Your piece has a lot of information, but it doesn’t sound like a news article. What was the point of his speech/presentation? Why was he addressing this audience? What is Vanguard? What does the company do – who does it serve? You spend a lot of time narrating (for example, how he was injured), but did not report on the purpose of the event. You can maybe mention his appearance/joking about it in a sentence or two, but do not take several paragraphs to do so. Also, I like how you mentioned where the name “Vanguard” comes from.

There are a lot of spelling errors in this piece – make sure you proof read each sentence carefully.

I know I am getting back to you a little later I hoped, and I’m sorry about that! But if you have time tonight, please go through my suggestions and try to rework your piece. You can send me what you have tonight/tomorrow morning. Please bring a copy of it to the meeting tomorrow and we will discuss it further from there.

Once again, thanks for your hard work and promptness! Remember this is a learning process, and we are all part of the Waltonian team!

Talk to you soon!
