I wholeheartedly agree. But I honestly think she is going to say yes. They’re leading it to her not getting into that college, and I bet she didn’t apply anywhere else.
Honestly though, if that’s their way of keeping her on the show for another season, they deserve to be punched in the face. We look forward to Rachel going to New York the same way we look forward to the holidays: with the happy inevitability that it’s going to happen.
