The One With The Applications...
1 May 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I love this episode. I just love to see Rory get all excited about applying to colleges.

In this episode, as college is coming up fast, Rory receives her Harvard application, which means she has to pick an essay topic. She gets all nervous about the application, wondering if she should put a lot of interests, or just some, or whether she needs to do this or do that. Since she's so anxious, hence the episode title: Application Anxiety, she is able to set up a lunch with a Harvard alumni, to see if she even has a chance of getting in. When she and Lorelai go, Rory gets to ask every question she's ever wanted to know. But all this college talk makes Dean worried about his future with her. Meanwhile, Taylor wants to open an old fashioned soda shop next to Luke's, which isn't impressing him, and Lane advertises for a new band member to replace Dave.

Overall, I give this episode a 9 out of 10, which in my ratings book is: Amazing.
