When you watch a TV show/movie where a character with very average grades gets into Stanford/Harvard/Yale, does it make you bat an eye at all? Or do you just shrug it off because it's fiction? Would you have preferred it if the writers made them go to somewhere more realistic?

I'm thinking specifically of A Cinderella Story, where Hilary Duff's character AND her boyfriend get into Harvard in the end. well you get the picture.
